- Implanted AgeOlder AdultHearing LossSlowly ProgressiveImplantedLeftI had a severe bilateral hearing loss in HS progressing to profound by the end of my college days. I relied upon lipreading mainly for HS and college but I also used ASL because my birth family included two sisters who were born deaf and used ASL.
