Presbycusis, or age-related hearing loss, is the gradual decline in hearing experienced in both ears. It’s a common issue associated with aging, affecting one in three adults over the age of 65. Due to the slow progression of the condition, some individuals may not initially notice the changes in their hearing.

Leaving hearing loss untreated can have profound and often underestimated consequences. Emerging studies underscore a pivotal correlation that hearing loss can expedite cognitive decline, especially among individuals aged 45 to 64.

If you have concerns about you or your loved ones hearing, book a full diagnostic hearing test with our audiologists today.
