Degrees of Hearing Loss
More than 900,000 people in the UK are severely or profoundly deaf. Here we’ve outlined the varying degrees of hearing loss:
Mild - those who experience mild hearing loss have some difficulties keeping up with conversations, especially in noisy surroundings.
Moderate - those who experience moderate hearing loss often have difficulty keeping up with conversations and understanding speech, especially when there is background noise.
Severe - those who experience severe hearing loss would struggle to find even loud sounds audible, but with a hearing instrument this is possible.
Profound - those who experience profound hearing loss would struggle to find extremely loud sounds audible. communication without a hearing instrument is almost impossible.
