Age-related hearing loss, also known as presbycusis, is the loss of hearing that gradually occurs as we age. Age-related hearing loss is one of the most common conditions affecting older and elderly adults.

“Approximately one in three people in the United States between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss, and nearly half of those older than 75 have difficulty hearing,” according to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD). “Having trouble hearing can make it hard to understand and follow a doctor's advice, respond to warnings, and hear phones, doorbells, and smoke alarms.
