Hearing Aid in Kolkata: Tests & Treatment for Hearing Loss

Deafness is a curse to human being. Many people gradually lose hearing slowly as they are growing old, which is probably natural as a part of aging process and is an inevitable physiological phenomena. But some also acquire deafness as a result of different ear diseases. As for example, chronically infected ear with perforation in the ear drum, fixity of the mobile ossicles (three tiny bones in the middle ear, responsible for conduction of sound), sudden loss of hearing due to viral or some unknown cause, exposure to loud noise etc. are a few. Some of these conditions are treatable and even curable if treated early, but in some other, there is no curative treatment as such.

The irony is a deaf person cannot be identified by his appearance, unlike a blind person. Our society is sympathetic to a blind man but a deaf person is often laughed at. We shout at a deaf person standing in the road who cannot hear the cycle bell or motor horn but escort a blind across the road with care.

In the family, even close relatives get exhausted shouting at deaf person and naturally try to avoid. The patient on the other hand, with all shyness, gradually withdraws himself from the family, avoid family gathering and slowly gets isolated. This invariably ends up in depression and more isolation. This is obvious that deafness cause a person more handicapped in the long run than what blindness can.

Hearing aid is an essential tool like a spectacle, which can reduce this difficulty in hearing to a great extent. But because of our social stigma, deaf patients hesitate to use a hearing aid, while they don’t mind putting on costly and very stylish glasses that add to their beauty.
