Hearing loss can develop slowly over time, or suddenly and without warning. In some cases, such as a middle ear infection or damaged eardrum, your ear can heal and hearing loss may improve with treatment. In others treatment with medication isn’t possible, such as with age-related hearing loss like presbyacusis
. Either way, your hearing loss won’t get better on its own. Take proactive control of your hearing health by working with your physician and hearing care specialist early.
