What is bilateral hearing loss?
Bilateral hearing loss simply means that both ears are affected.
Bilateral hearing loss usually occurs gradually over time. But in some (rare) cases, it can come on suddenly.
The experience of bilateral hearing loss can vary from person to person, so it’s important to have your hearing loss checked by a hearing care expert.
And given that there are other hearing health conditions whose symptoms might overlap with bilateral hearing loss, seeking advice from an expert means you’ll be treated for your specific hearing needs.
