We have two ears, not just one, just like we have two eyes. Both of your eyes allow for better perception, just as both of your ears allow for a balanced and full sound experience. Although hearing loss in one ear does happen, it is far more common to have hearing loss in both ears.
Most hearing care professionals will advise you to get two hearing aids. You have a much brighter, fuller experience with two hearing aids. Plus, hearing aids today are designed to wirelessly work together.
Asking for clarification on what is said goes away. Users will discover this fact. It is harder to hear with only one hearing aid because it is more difficult to locate the source of sounds. You will end up having to turn the volume up on everything, which can annoy others.
So, even if your hearing is better or normal in one ear, consider getting two hearing aids for a far better, quality listening experience. It will enrich your life, as most wearers will realize.
