The Importance of a hearing test, Cortland, New York

One important reason for having your hearing tested is that any detected hearing loss will prompt you to have its cause diagnosed. Generally speaking , there are two types of hearing loss: “sensorineural” and “conductive”. Sensorineural hearing loss occurs when there is damage to the inner ear( cochlea)or to the nerve pathways from the inner ear to the brain. While this type of hearing loss cannot be medically or surgically corrected, it generally lends itself to improvement with a hearing instrument. Conductive hearing loss, which occurs when sound is  not conducted efficiently through the outer ear canal to the eardrum and the tiny bones(ossicles) if the middle ear, can often be corrected medically or surgically.

A hearing test includes several tests that measure how well you hear a variety of sounds, such as tones and speech. A baseline hearing screening is recommended at age 50, unless you're experiencing symptoms of hearing loss sooner.
