Usher Syndrome is a rare genetic condition that affects vision, hearing, and balance. There are three types of Usher Syndrome. Type one causes deafness at birth, progressive vision loss starting around age ten, and balance problems. Type two causes moderate to severe hearing loss at birth and progressive vision loss starting in the teenage years. Type three is very rare and causes progressive hearing loss beginning in late childhood and progressive vision loss in adulthood. The disease occurs in varying degrees, so some patients only experience moderate hearing and vision loss, while others become deaf and blind. There is no cure, but patients can improve symptoms with corrective lenses, hearing aids, and cochlear implants.
An early diagnosis of Usher Syndrome is important because it improves treatment success. This is why discovering and acknowledging there is a hearing problem is the first step toward managing it. The next step is turning to a hearing aid specialist for comprehensive examination, evaluation, and determination of the best approach to the impairment.

P.S. Usher syndrome is a recessive genetic disorder, so a child must inherit the mutated gene from both parents. If both parents carry the gene, their children have a one in four chance of inheriting the disease.
