High-frequency Hearing Loss
In a previous article we went over how the famous actor Jean-Clause Van Damme suffers from High-Frequency hearing loss. So what is this condition and how does it affect your hearing health?
According to an article written by the website ehealthmd, “High frequency hearing loss often involves loss of ability to hear consonants such as s, f, t, and z, even though vowels can be heard normally. Consequently, people hear but cannot make out what is being said.”
Suffering from this type of hearing loss negatively affects a person’s quality of life, as they are unable to understand what is being said to them when interacting with others. Visiting a Miami hearing center and seeing an audiologist, will allow patients to obtain the treatment they need to be able to lead a better quality of life.
Often patients are fitted with a hearing aid, which helps them better understand the sounds around them. For more information contact your local New Generation Hearing Center, where an audiologist such as Dr. Joseph Duran will provide you with the service you need.
