Why I Can't Hear Out Of One Ear?
Can't hear out of one ear? This common problem may be a result of an infection or blockage, ageing or another medical issue. Read on for more information.
What could cause a loss of hearing in one ear?
As we get older, our hearing can naturally diminish. This could affect one ear over another where you may notice weaker levels of hearing in a particular ear.
Depending on the cause of hearing loss, you may have to take action to prevent further loss of hearing. Hearing aids are a valuable asset to effectively manage hearing loss in one ear, and we supply an affordable range of digital hearing aids to help you enjoy the sounds you love to hear.
2. Wax Build-Up
A build-up of wax in one ear is another common cause of hearing loss. An accumulation of wax could result in sounds appearing muffled or quieter than usual. Subsequently, the removal of wax can help see your hearing revert back to normal.
We have a number of products to help with earwax removal including:
Audiclean Cleansing Ear Wash: Audiclean Ear Cleansing Wash is a great way to gently rinse residues from the ear canal and with regular use helps keep ears feeling clear and fresh and also prevents wax build-up.
AudiSpray Adult: AudiSpray works by gradually thinning and dissolving ear wax to gently remove excess wax, dust, dirt, and prevent blockages.
Earpal Earwax Remover: Earpal is THE ONLY SAFE WAY to remove earwax from your ears as it can never touch or perforate the eardrum by accident.
Earol Olive Oil Spray: A single metered dose of olive oil can be placed into the outer ear canal to soften and remove earwax.
3. Foreign Objects Causing a Blockage
When you can't hear out of one ear another cause may be a foreign object or liquids such as water. Trapped water can naturally disappear, however, a trapped object may require medical attention. If water is a problem then you can use the ACU-Life Dry Ears air puffer to inject fresh air into the ear canal to break the surface tension that retains water.
It is not recommended that you insert objects into your ear. This may result in compaction of any wax or damage to the ear drum.
We supply a number of valuable products to assist other causes of clogged ear such a wax build-up. This includes the items highlighted above. For more products, visit our ear hygiene page.
