Can tinnitus be the first symptom of hearing loss?

Yes. That ringing in your ears is a signal to get your annual ear check up. Tinnitus can also be caused by a simple lack in your diet, so don’t waste time wondering and go see your doctor.

Can hearing loss be cured?

Most cases of hearing loss are permanent. If you’re experiencing conductive hearing loss, usually caused by issues to the outer or middle ear blocking sound, your hearing can generally be restored with the proper treatment. Sensorineural hearing loss results from damage to parts of the inner ear, often from loud noise exposure or aging, and is generally permanent. While this type of hearing loss cannot be cured, a hearing care professional can help you find the right hearing aids to address your specific needs and help restore some of your hearing.

I am a veteran with hearing loss and/or tinnitus. How can I get help?

If you're a veteran who wishes to get your hearing tested, register via the health administration/enrollment section of the VA medical center of your choice. This can be done in person, or online by filling out Form 10-10EZ, or by mailing a completed Form 10-10EZ to your chosen VA medical center. For details on the eligibility of enrolled veterans for hearing service coverage, visit the website on medical benefits. After registering, request a referral to an Audiology and Speech Pathology Clinic from your VA primary care provider. If an audiological evaluation reveals you require hearing aids or other assistive devices, they will be provided at no charge. Your audiologist will explain how to order batteries, wax guards, and other hearing aid accessories during your consultation, as these and future repairs will also be covered by your VA benefits.
