The most common cause of hearing loss is nature, where people experience hearing loss with ageing. On average, men will start to lose their hearing at the age of 55 and women at 62. If one is exposed to significant noise, whether it is work or recreational noise, the onset of hearing loss can occur much sooner than the average age. Hearing loss occurs when there is a breakdown in the pathway of hearing and interpreting sounds. The main causes of hearing loss include:

  • The aging process
  • Excessive exposure to loud noise

Some other common causes of hearing loss include:

  • Viruses
  • Infections
  • Hereditary / Genetic causes
  • Ototoxic Drugs
  • Head Injuries

Consequences of Hearing Loss

Hearing loss is a prevalent issue affecting approximately 1 in 6 Australians, with a projected increase to 1 in 4 by 2050. The onset of hearing loss is typically around the age of 55 for men and 62 for women, with age being the most common cause of hearing loss. However, individuals who have had noisy jobs or hobbies are at a higher risk of developing hearing loss earlier in life or to a greater degree. This condition can negatively impact not only the affected individual but also their relationships, lifestyle and overall well-being.
