Do Hearing Aids Cause Hearing Loss?


One major concern many have when buying hearing aids is their hearing loss will worsen if they start wearing hearing aids. I often hear people say after they have worn hearing aids for a few weeks that they seem to have a harder time hearing without them than they did before using them. Could hearing aids cause hearing loss? The reality is that it’s a matter of perception and their brains tricking them.

When presented with an optical illusion, it is very plain to see how your eye is being tricked, as it was with the infamous dress.
