      I have tinnitus in my right ear due to hearing loss.

      Is it possible for my hearing in the left ear to improve, since the right ear is so weak?

      sure,your body will adapt and the left ear will work for the right one. if you have severe hearing loss, also think about a hearing aid. it will probably also help a lot with your Tinnitus, there are many people who can't hear their T with a well adjusted hearing aid. also...since when do you have the hearing loss? if it hasn't been very long I would try cortison drug infusions... sometimes they can help recover some hearing if it hasn't been too long.

      Shit happens
      Due to eye illness, vision in my right eye became distorted and picture is smaller than in my left eye. In a year or so my brain learned to construct coherent picture of the environment. So brain is a powerful organ. I would not say the vision in my good eye got any better though, and I doubt the hearing of your good ear gets any better. But your brain will adapt to the new circumstances and it will be ok.
