Age-Related Hearing Loss? Why It Happens And What Can Help
For most people, the process of growing older includes some experiences that are less than pleasant, such as age-related hearing loss, also known as presbycusis. Unlike hearing loss that results from an injury or illness, presbycusis can progress very slowly and may not be recognized in its early stages. Early stages Presbycusis may first present as a lessened ability to hear higher-pitched sounds, like alarms, timers and the ring of a telephone.
