What's Hearing Loss?
The ear is made up of three different sections: the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. These three sections work together so you can hear and process sounds. Hearing loss or hearing impairment happens when a problem exists with one or more parts of the ear.
In most cases, someone who has a hearing loss or impairment will still be able to hear some sounds. The problem is with its speech clarity. Without clarity, communication is not effective and this inevitably affects relationships and quality of life.
Most Common Hearing Loss
Presbyacusis – This is an age-related hearing loss. It refers to the slow loss of hearing that occurs as people get older. This is the most common loss affecting speech discrimination.
Otitis Media (Ear Infection) – Otitis media is an infection of the middle ear, the area just behind the eardrum. It happens when the eustachian tubes, which connect the middle ear to the nose, become blocked with fluid.
Noise Induced – This refers to losses due to the continued exposure to loud sounds over a long period of time.
Facts About Hearing Loss

Best service I ever experienced!
“I have a hearing loss for many years. I have bought hearing aids from many places but I am not satisfied.
I visited Clariti – Hearing Care Professionals with the intention to buy 2 new hearing aids. Ronald assessed my situation and gave me very professional advice.
He said my right hearing aid is still working but needed re-programming to meet my latest hearing loss condition. Only my left hearing aid needed to be changed. I am impressed with the professionalism displayed at Clariti.
I am now wearing my new pair of hearing aids. I can hear clearly again.
I am more than happy to share my experience publicly to encourage more people to visit Clariti for all their hearing needs. The level of service provided is the best I have ever experienced.
I am surely a very happy Clariti customer.”
I can hear clearly now. Excellent service!
“I have a hearing problem for a long time. I have also done an operation on my ears at the hospital but I still cannot hear well.
My daughter brought me to Clariti – Hearing Care professionals. Ronald measured my hearing loss and explained the situation to me. His knowledge and professionalism gave me a lot of confidence. I was prescribed a pair of hearing aids that met my budget and hearing needs.
My new aids have improved my quality of life greatly. They are quiet and comfortable to wear. Watching the TV is also not a problem anymore.
Clariti continued to provide follow up consultations that ensure I can hear clearly all the time. These consultations are free. Excellent service!
I am another happy Clariti customer!”
