Hearing Evaluations

When you catch your reflection in the mirror, the subtle signs of aging might not jump out at you right away. Yet, when you compare your current appearance to old photographs, the changes become clear. Similarly, hearing loss often creeps up slowly and quietly, much like the natural aging process, making it hard to notice that your hearing might be declining. Without a reference point for comparison, it’s easy to brush off or underestimate signs of hearing loss in everyday situations.

This is why many people tend to downplay the impact of hearing loss and choose to ignore the challenges it presents. However, a simple hearing evaluation can provide a clear understanding of any hearing difficulties you might be facing. Moreover, it can offer insights into potential treatments to restore your hearing to its previous level.

The evaluation process is quick and painless, yielding immediate results. It not only establishes a baseline for future assessments but also gives a comprehensive understanding of the interventions available to enhance your hearing. Seize this opportunity to gain valuable insights and actively manage your hearing health.

The Tests

Otoscopy involves visually examining your ears and ear canal to check for debris, earwax accumulation, inflammation, and infection. If your ear is blocked because of wax build-up, we will clear it before conducting the hearing test.

Pure Tone Audiometry is a behavioral test utilized to assess hearing sensitivity, giving us insight into the faintest sound you can detect.

Speech Audiometry assesses your capacity to understand spoken language.

Tympanometry is a hearing assessment that employs different air pressures to evaluate the state of the middle ear, including the mobility of the eardrum and the conduction bones.

Acoustic Reflexes refer to the automatic muscle contractions in the middle ear triggered by sound stimulation. This test evaluates the efficiency of your acoustic reflexes.

Otoacoustic Emission (OAE Hearing Test) evaluates the function of hair cells in the inner ear. An emission denotes the sound produced within the cochlea of the ear in response to stimulation.
