For years I have had to use the caption on the TV. It doesn't always say what is being said but most of the time, I wouldn't know the difference since my hearing is worse. I don't exactly know how to read the charts they give me but the numbers are down to 90. I think I have lost 90% of my hearing? Can anyone tell me? Thank you. Woogie.

@woogie …. Not knowing what the context of your "90" would be… I might venture a guess… I am profoundly deaf in my left ear.. but my hearing tests in my right ear show at what decibel (db) level I respond to the beeps… the noise in the test… In my right ear a noise has to be at 60db in certain frequencies..(ambient noise in a social situation can easily be at 60db … so if someone were to be talking to me they would have to be speaking at a higher level (louder) for me to hear…. In my left ear A noise has to be at 90 db.. (that is like a jet plane)… for me to hear … … Please tell us in what context are your "numbers" …Ken
