A retracted (collapsed) eardrum happens as the result of an air pressure imbalance inside the ear. The air pressure outside your ears should be equal to the air pressure inside your ears. When an air imbalance occurs, it can cause a vacuum effect that pulls the eardrum toward the middle of the ear. The most common cause of a retracted eardrum is Eustachian tube dysfunction or a blockage in the Eustachian tubes. A retracted eardrum may heal on its own, but sometimes the condition causes a secondary problem called cholesteatoma, which causes a cyst to grow behind the eardrum. If left untreated, cholesteatoma can damage the tiny bones in the middle ear that transmit sound waves, leading to hearing loss.
Our staff is well-trained in a variety of services ranging from providing audiological evaluations and treatments, dispensing hearing instruments and other listening devices, and working with patients to outline a strategic plan for achieving optimum communication capabilities. When it comes to better hearing, you can always count on.
P.S. After a collapsed eardrum occurs, it can take several months for the air pressure inside the ear to equalize again.
