As we get older, our hearing can deteriorate for a number of reasons. The most common reason for hearing loss is the condition called presbycusis, a symptom of the natural ageing process. However, there are also other forms of hearing loss that aren’t directly related to natural ageing, such as nosocusis, which refers to hearing loss that results from cumulative environmental factors.

Another condition that may necessitate a hearing loss test or hearing aid test is sociocusis. This refers to acquired hearing loss caused by lifestyle factors such as frequent exposure to loud music or noise, vascular degeneration caused by smoking and dietary habits, and the frequent use of ototoxic prescription drugs.

About Presbycusis Hearing Loss

Presbycusis hearing loss is a form of sensorineural hearing loss that progresses slowly with age. It typically affects both ears and impacts high-frequency sounds more than deeper sounds. As a result, presbycusis sensorineural hearing loss can make it difficult to hear speech and follow conversation. Common presbycusis symptoms include hearing loss that occurs simultaneously in both of the ears, an inability to hear high-pitches noises, tinnitus (a ringing in the ears), and difficulty hearing background noises. If a presbycusis hearing test or presbycusis audiogram confirms hearing loss, there are a number of presbycusis treatment options available, including hearing aids.

If your hearing is causing you concern, we recommend making an appointment for an audio hearing test with one of our experienced and qualified audiologists. If you’re not sure whether you need a hearing loss test, consider the following questions:

  • Does your hearing cause you to feel embarrassed when you meet new people?
  • Do you sometimes struggle to understand unfamiliar people, such as shop assistants?
  • Does your hearing cause you to feel frustrated when talking to or visiting family, friends or neighbours?
  • Do you have trouble hearing people in busy social settings, such as shopping centres and restaurants?
  • Do you have difficulty hearing people who speak in a low voice or a whisper?
  • Do you feel handicapped by a hearing problem?
  • Do you have trouble understanding phone conversations?
  • Does your hearing cause you to attend concerts, movies and religious services less often than you would like?
  • Do you have trouble hearing people when travelling by car or bus?
  • Does your hearing cause you to have arguments with family members about the volume on televisions and stereos?
  • Do you have to strain to understand everything that is said at meetings and lectures?
  • Does your hearing make it difficult to listen to the TV or radio?
  • Do you feel that your hearing limits or hampers your personal or social life?
  • Does your hearing cause you difficulty when at a restaurant with relatives or friends?

If you answered yes to three or more of these questions, you may be experiencing hearing loss that can be diagnosed with a simple audiometry test. We can help you understand the nature and severity of your potential hearing deficit and advise you on the steps you can take to reclaim your hearing. This can be done simply by administering an audiology hearing test at one of our Melbourne audiology clinics.
