Hearing loss hasn’t help back these high-achieving celebrities.
Rock stars and musicians suffering hearing loss is hardly surprising, but you may not be aware of other famous people who have flourished in their chosen field despite not being able to hear properly.
A victim of domestic violence in the early 90s, Halle Berry has lost 80 per cent of hearing in her left ear as a result of the physical abuse.
Eric Clapton is just one of the many musicians now suffering for his art. He has, however, learned his lesson and now uses earplugs to protect his hearing.
Music also claimed some of Bill Clinton’s hearing ability, although age also played a factor in high-frequency hearing loss and the former US President now wears hearing aids in both ears.
Scottish actor Gerard Butler had surgery on his right ear when he was a child and now suffers tinnitus and hearing loss in the deformed ear.
Actor Rob Lowe suffered from a virus in infancy which claimed the hearing in his right ear.
Having to overcome hearing loss hasn’t held back these famous people and nor should it you. If you think your hearing isn’t as sharp as it once was, perhaps its time to make an appointment.
