Unilateral hearing loss

Unilateral Hearing Loss is the loss of hearing in one ear – can be mild to profound (deaf). Can be permanent or temporary depending on the reason for the loss.

Some hearing loss can not be explained as the inner workings of the ear are very delicate and cannot be seen.

They may require a hearing aid in their hearing ear to support their hearing.
