Veterans Are Heavily Impacted by Hearing Loss & Tinnitus
According to the U.S. Department of Defense Hearing Center of Excellence (HCE), the numbers for those injured in the global war on terror effort are more than 350,000 service members with tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and over 250,000 with hearing loss. In the past decade, 840,000 service members have been diagnosed with tinnitus, and just over 700,000 have hearing loss, the HCE says. Combined, the number of cases of tinnitus, hearing loss, and other auditory disorders over the last decade tops 1 million. Learn more about the impact of hearing loss and tinnitus on veterans.
