Hearing is not just a problem with ears of the affected person, the problem affects not just that individual, also the people around. Communication would become a major problem as the person wouldn’t be able to listen and converse properly. This results in isolation from a group and even builds inferiority complex about themselves. Further the impact is in the following ways:
Especially with youngsters who use unsafe headsets, or people who are prone to loud noise mostly. Their attention spans are lower than that of typical people. They generally opt out of the conversation abruptly or even stay out of it. Hearing issues can therefore result in the diminishing of common conscious mental activities such as thinking, learning, understanding and remembering, eventually result in dementia.
Lack of privacy:
Often noticed that the people with hearing disorder not only are deprived of their own privacy, also of people around them. We would have often noticed people who speak loud on phone or listen with loud volume.
Following distractions, hearing impairment might eventually result in dizziness, vertigo, nausea or imbalance among the adults.
A check up with a qualified audiologist on diagnosis is strongly recommended. Hearing loss upto 20%can be corrected medically or surgically (on the worst case) and up to 90% of the hearing losses can be managed using today’s innovative hearing aids ranging from the conventional visible ones to 100% invisible ones.
