How can We Diagnose Presbycusis?

The diagnosis of presbycusis involves a physical examination and medical history to rule out other common causes of hearing loss, such as fluid in the ear or a wax obstruction.

An audiogram (hearing test) is done in a sound-treated room by an audiologist to determine the extent of hearing loss.
