The Impact of Unilateral Hearing Loss on Adult Life

There is a need to improve awareness and to better understand the impact and struggles of people who have unilateral hearing loss (UHL), the professionals who treat them, and those who work, live, and socialize with them. With better awareness comes better understanding, so health professionals can refer them rather than dismiss them. Moreover, better understanding can fuel motivation and allow the person with UHL to be more proactive about managing the condition while reducing anxiety.
