Deafness is the loss of ability to hear normally. There are two types of deafness - conductive and sensori-neural. These can occur separately or together when it is called mixed loss and one (unilateral) or both ears (bilateral) may be involved to varying degrees from mild to profound. Most cases of nerve deafness don’t respond to treatment and may only be helped with hearing Aids or Cochlear Implants.
