Hearing aid: Hearing aids can be very helpful. You might start with the physical examination by board-certified otolaryngologist and an audiogram

See ENT doctor: Your hearing loss may or may not be due to Meniere's at this point, and a visit to an otolaryngologist could provide audiometric testing which might lead to prescribing a modern small hearing aide. Worthwhile to get this addressed.
