Children's Eyes and Hearing

That's the type of hearing loss caused by inner ear damage, either from genes or the environment.

Doctors with the University of Washington looked at more than two-hundred-twenty kids with hearing loss for the study.

About twenty-two percent also had some sort of eye disorder. Like nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism.

Researchers say that especially early in life - hearing loss can cause delays in language, speech, cognitive and social development.
