What happens during a hearing test?
Our hearing evaluation begins with a Case History. You will be asked about your medical history, current medical issues, hearing loss symptoms, family history of hearing loss, history of noise exposure and your hearing concerns.
Next, we look into your ears using a tiny camera called a video Otoscope. This instrument is used to see the ear canal and eardrum to determine whether or not there is earwax obstructing the canal or any other conditions. You will be able to see what we see on the video monitor!
Once we see that your ear canals are clear of obstruction and the eardrums are of healthy appearance, we can perform your hearing test in our sound treated testing booth.
This testing will enable us to determine:
- Whether or not a hearing loss exists
- The possible cause of hearing loss
- The degree and type of hearing loss and whether the loss exists in one or both ears
- Make an appropriate hearing aid recommendation
There is a wide selection of models, sizes and technologies to accommodate most lifestyles, budgets and cosmetic preferences.
