Hearing Loss

One in six Australians has a hearing loss and this figure is projected to increase to one in four Australians by the year 2050.

Hearing loss can range from mild to profound, be a condition existing at birth, develop early on in life or be acquired over a period of time or suddenly.

A hearing loss can occur from many causes and indicates that there is a problem with the hearing pathway, in the outer, middle or inner ears or in the auditory nerve pathway to the brain.
