In brief: Hearing preservation

Ultimately it will depend on what caused your hearing loss in the first place.
Make sure to protect your ears anytime you are in a noisy environment or you are using power tools/heavy equipment. Understand that even under "normal" circumstances we all lose hearing over time. Remember to check in with your ENT & audiologist as they recommend.
