What is the outlook for age-related hearing loss?

Hearing loss is a progressive condition. However, it can be managed by using a hearing aid that amplifies the surrounding sounds. Other assistive systems include visual cues or vibrations for devices such as doorbells, smoke detectors or alarms, or telephone amplifying devices that increase the volume of the voice being listened to.
