Do you need to have your hearing checked?
Hearing loss, or hearing impairment happens when there is a problem with one or more parts of the ear or ears. Someone who has hearing loss or impairment may be able to hear some sounds or nothing at all.
Impairment means something is not working correctly or as well as it should.
This can be due to a medical condition, environmental conditions, or aging.
Does this hearing aid bother you?
Hearing (or audition) is one of the traditional five senses. It is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations via an organ such as the ear. The inability to hear is called deafness.
Less than 20% of those needing hearing aids are wearing them. Hearing aids are no longer worn mostly by the elderly, but by those of all ages.
In humans and other vertebrates, hearing is performed primarily by the auditory system: vibrations are detected by the ear and transduced into nerve impulses that are perceived by the brain (primarily in the temporal lobe). Like touch, audition requires sensitivity to the movement of molecules in the world outside the organism. Both hearing and touch are types of mechanosensation.
