Hearing loss is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It can be caused by a variety of factors, including age, genetics, and noise exposure.
There are a number of treatments available for hearing loss, including hearing aids and cochlear implants. Hearing aids amplify sound, making it easier for people with hearing loss to hear. Cochlear implants are electronic devices that bypass the damaged parts of the ear and stimulate the auditory nerve directly.
