are there any options for profound hearing loss in one ear while the other ear has perfect hearing?


Posted by happy20

My neice is 5 months old and in her right ear has profound to severe hearing loss while her left ear is hearing perfect? 

 Is there a hearing aid or treatment to help her as she gets older?

I have a daughter with severe to profound hearing loss in both ears.  She now has bilateral cochlear implants.  She was diagnosed at 4 weeks old and was implanted at 13 months and 17months.  Have your niece's mom talk to the audiologist about cochlear implants.  She may be a candidate.
