Hearing loss happens slowly, so sometimes friends and family may notice a problem before you do.Get in Touch
Our comprehensive consultation entails a thorough diagnostic evaluation of your auditory system, covering the following key components:
Once the tests are concluded, your audiologist will compile the collected information and offer a comprehensive explanation of the results. Additionally, they will explore suitable solutions for you and, if necessary, make onward referrals to your doctor.
If the test results suggest that hearing aids could be beneficial, we will discuss the latest available technology and ensure that the hearing aids are tailored to meet your specific needs.
Whilst they won’t cost you anything, free hearing tests are often carried out within 15 minute time slots and they are very basic.
They might be useful if you just want a quick hearing check up but if you suspect a hearing loss, we would recommend a more comprehensive hearing test. High street chains offer free hearing tests as a way to sell their limited range of hearing aids.
It’s important to get your hearing checked regularly rather than waiting for a problem to arise. Having said that, if you’re feeling any discomfort in your ears or your hearing suddenly changes in any way, you should book a hearing test.
If you’re struggling with conversation (in person and on the phone) or you’re mumbling and asking people to repeat themselves a lot, that’s also a good sign you should book a hearing test. As mentioned above, another very good indicator is watching the televisions with the volume louder than other people need it.
You may also experience a sensation of water in your ears which makes things sound dull.
How often you should get a hearing test will mainly depend on your age and lifestyle. If you’re younger than 50 and have no concerns about your hearing, once every 3 years is a good guide. Having said that, if you’re young and you listen to a lot of loud music or work in loud environments, we would recommend more frequent checks.
For people over the age of 50, we would suggest getting your hearing tested once a year. This is because hearing tends to affect you more later in life. Remember, hearing tests are very straightforward and painless so there’s no reason not to get one when you need.Get in Touch
