Noise Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) is the only preventable form of hearing loss. We live in a noisy world and are constantly exposed to sounds, whether from the television, traffic, recreational activities, or due to our occupation. The cumulative effect from this noise exposure, or even one single incident without adequate hearing protection, can lead to permanent sensorineural hearing loss. NIHL is not limited to one specific age range. Based on data from 2005-2006, researchers have estimated that as many as 17 percent of teens (ages 12-19) have features of their hearing test suggestive of NIHL in one or both ears.1
