As your trusted Allen Park and Southfield hearing center, we at Platinum Hearing Aids are proud to offer a variety of hearing aids and hearing tests to make sure that your hearing maintains full functionality. Through our comprehensive audiology care, we’re able to treat a variety of aural conditions and disorders. One such condition we’re experienced at treating is unilateral hearing loss, or hearing loss in one ear. While a person may be able to hear clearly with one ear, the deafness in the other ear will lead to problems such as figuring out where a sound came from and understanding speech in crowded environments.
Reasons Why This May Occur
There are a number of reasons as to why hearing loss in one ear can occur. It can be caused by:
- Wax buildup
- An injury to the ear
- Prescription medications
- Loud noises
What You Should Do
The first thing you should do is contact your doctor in case you’re experiencing hearing loss in one ear. Having hearing loss on one side is considered a medical emergency and it’s something that needs immediate medical attention. Your doctor will be able to determine what the best way of treating it is, whether it’s a hearing aid, surgery, or even simply letting it heal on its own.
