About Hearing Loss
Noise can be dangerous if:
- It’s painful to your ears
- Makes your ears ring
- If you must shout to be heard
- If you have “muffled” hearing hours after exposure
A complete audiological evaluation includes:
- Otoscopy: Visual examination of the ear
- Pure Tone Audiometry: The lowest level at which a person can hear a tone at various pitches
- Speech Audiometry: How well a person understands speech
- Tympanometry: Evaluates the status of the middle ear
Once the evolution is complete, the results are discussed with the patient and the audiologist will determine: A) If any medical intervention is required. B) If hearing aid(s) will provide benefit to the patient. C) No action is necessary at that time.
If Hearing Aids are Recommended: We will help you choose from the best digital hearing aid(s) that are available depending on your degree of hearing loss, lifestyle and even cosmetic preferences
Hearing Aid Fitting
To determine the optimum programming of your hearing aids we will use your audiogram as well as your personal preferences in various listening environments.
We will teach you how to insert the hearing aids, operate and maintain them.
We will tell you to wear your new hearing aid(s) every day to adapt to them and assess your hearing ability in different listening environments.
Follow up appointment will be made 1 week after the initial fitting to fine tune your hearing aids to your preferences. Our goal is to provide you with the optimal hearing experience.
