Unilateral hearing loss


Unilateral hearing loss (UHL) is also known as Single Sided Deafness (SSD) – it is where a person has normal hearing in one ear but an impairment in the other.

People suffering UHL will have difficulty hearing and understanding speech in noisy situations and they will find it difficult to localise sound.

CROS Hearing Aids

A contralateral routing of signals (CROS) hearing aid is used to treat single sided deafness – it takes sounds from the ear with poorer hearing and transmits it to the good ear.
