It plays a catalytic role in our lives by enabling effective communication and enhancing our perception of the environment.The ability to hear and interpret sounds is fundamental to mutual communication, social interaction, and personal safety. Thus, safeguarding our hearing becomes of paramount importance, as healthy hearing greatly contributes to a high quality of life and the overall development of every individual.
I cannot hear well - What does it mean?
When someone says, “I can’t hear well,” this can have many interpretations. It can be a simple way to describe difficulties in understanding speech in noisy environments or even the loss of the ability to hear low or high pitches.
“Not hearing well” can be the first sign of hearing loss or even an advanced stage of hearing loss. The term “hearing loss” refers to the condition where a person has difficulty hearing and interpreting sounds and speech in their environment. “I can’t hear well” and “hearing loss” are two statements that are directly linked and highlight a hearing problem that can have an impact on a person’s daily life and quality of life.
