If you have trouble hearing, you are not alone. Hearing loss is one of the most prevalent medical conditions affecting Americans of all ages.

More than 30 million Americans age 12 and older have some level of impaired hearing. Among older Americans, hearing impairment is the third most common chronic condition, and can lead to social isolation, functional decline, and depression. And an increasing number of young people are experiencing hearing loss due to exposure to loud noises, many from personal listening devices.
