While hearing aids can help most people with mild to moderate hearing loss — they can’t help everyone.
For many people with severe-to-profound sensorineural hearing loss (also known as ‘nerve deafness’), even the most advanced and powerful hearing aids may not help. That’s because hearing aids essentially amplify sound, and making sounds louder does not always make them clearer.
Ask yourself these questions:
While you are wearing your hearing aids, do you still have difficulty?
It may be that a cochlear implant might offer you the hearing solution you need.
If you have recently had your hearing assessed, your hearing health professional may consider a cochlear implant as the solution if your hearing aids are no longer enough.
Please discuss available options with them or get in touch with the cochlear implant programme in your region.
