My husband has been deaf in one ear since he was ten years old from the mumps. He has inner ear nerve damage. He hears constant ringing in that ear and even in his other ear too. His good ear he only has about 90 percent. It's been over 20 years since he's been to a hearing specialist and they said there wasn't anything they could do. He said his good ear is getting worse. Is there anything that can be done?
