Unilateral hearing loss or single-sided deafness is when there is impaired hearing in one ear and normal hearing in the other.
In this blog post, we explain what the condition is, signs to look out for, and how to treat and manage the impairment.
Unilateral hearing loss (UHL) can be defined as a loss of hearing in one ear and not the other. The other ear often remains unaffected by any type of impairment. When both ears are affected but the degree of hearing loss is different in both ears, it is known as an asymmetrical hearing loss.
As with any type of hearing impairment, the actual cause may be difficult to diagnose. UHL can be caused by one or several of the following:
A medical professional, ENT doctor or audiologist may be able to shed more light on your condition.
Potential losses of hearing share a similar number of warning signs to look out for.
As a result of some of the above symptoms suffers may become irritable, experience headaches or feel more isolated than usual. It is recommended that if you do notice any of the above signs that you check your hearing.
To check for any potential impairment, take our free online hearing test.
You can take the test in the comfort of your own home and upon completion, your results will indicate if you need to take further action to prevent further damage. However, this test should not replace a professional audiological examination from a licensed healthcare practitioner.
Once the severity and type of hearing loss has been diagnosed, you can then look at treating and managing the condition.
