What Is a Hearing Test?

A hearing or an audiometric test is designed to determine your hearing ability within a normal range, as well as to measure the percentage of your hearing frequencies that are affected. It is a 30-minute test aimed to examine your hearing, speech understanding and assessment of your outer, middle, and inner ears.

 

A complete diagnosis includes:

  • A pure tone hearing test to know the threshold at which you can hear certain sound frequencies.
  • Speech test to detect the level of your speech understanding.
  • The results of the hearing tests are recorded on an audiogram in frequencies and decibels for us to understand whether you need a hearing aid or not.

 

How Do We Test Your Hearing?

When you visit our centre for hearing evaluation, you will be greeted with warm and friendly smiles who will guide you through various forms and questions regarding your personal information, past medical history and insurance policy, if any.

 

Our audiologists will then evaluate your medical history and specific environments where you usually encounter hearing discomforts. After that, we may inspect your inner ear and eardrum through an otoscope to check if you have any earwax in the compartment.

 

With the help of our thorough assessment, we will determine the following:

  • Cause of hearing loss
  • Level and category of hearing loss
  • Appropriate treatment
  • Need for a hearing aid

 

Benefits of Hearing Test

It is important to have a hearing test done if you feel even a slight discomfort as it can prevent a major issue. Hearing tests have several benefits, as listed below.

 

  • Better relationship with people: A hearing test eliminates the frustration you undergo if you can’t hear properly during family get-togethers and social activities.
  • Boost confidence: You can regain your lost confidence when you get your hearing back with the help of a hearing aid.
  • Eliminates bigger health risks: Your sudden or gradual hearing loss might be a symptom of some bigger health issue like depression or dementia.

 

 

Hearing Aid- The Next Step!

After assessing your hearing test, our audiologist will recommend you purchasing a hearing aid to improve your hearing capabilities. All our hearing aids are custom-made. To start making your device, we take an impression of the ear to create the perfect mould. We can analyze how the hearing aid behaves (computerized analysis) and, if it’s not operating properly, it can be reprogrammed by our experts. Finally, we provide counselling or a review of how your hearing aid should work and how you should look after it. We advise you on how to maximize the potential of your instrument, resulting in the best possible hearing with your device.
