Signs of hearing loss

Hearing loss can occur either suddenly or gradually over a period of time.

Regardless of how your hearing loss has come about or how long you’ve been experiencing it for, there are a range of symptoms that may be indications that you’re experiencing a diminishing ability to hear clearly.
