Sensorineural Hearing Loss accounts for 90% of all hearing loss

SNHL is hearing loss due to damage in the inner ear or to the vestibular nerve. It is caused by noise exposure, age, and medicines that are toxic to the inner ear. SNHL can be mild, moderate, severe, or total and is usually permanent, however, HEI's researchers are working on a medicine to restore hearing for everyone who suffers from SNHL.
