Did you know?
According to the charity ‘Action on Hearing Loss’, 11 million people in the UK have some form of hearing loss. It is an invisible issue, but one which can be diagnosed and usually treated very easily. If you are part of this group, it may be that you turn the TV up louder than you used to, or it’s trickier to fully hear conversations – this is where one of our hearing tests can help.
Hearing Tests. What we do.
Our expert hearing aid audiologist, will complete an ear health check and complete a full assessment of your hearing. They will ask you about your symptoms and what difficulties you are experiencing, as well as discuss how you feel about having a hearing test.
By taking a closer look at both ears using a video otoscope, will be able to determine if you have an outer ear blockage or any other issues which requires you to be referred to a GP or have ear wax removed.
Once your ear health has been checked, you will be given clear instructions, be fitted with earphones and given a button to press. The objective is to find the very faintest sounds you are able to just hear across a range of sounds from low to high pitched.
The audiometer is PC linked and calibrated. It take about 30 minutes and once done the results will be shared with you. If you have a prescription, we test that prescription using our Flex Trial instruments.
We will take care to explain the results to you and how they relate to your symptoms and importantly look at solutions to your problems will be discussed and you may even be able to trial a pair of hearing aids.
Will I Need Hearing Aids?
While most cases of hearing loss are down to a build up of ear wax, our ears are like any other part of the body, in that they become less effective over the years. If this is the case with your ears, then it may be that a hearing aid is the most sensible course of treatment.
Hearing aids have progressed considerably over the past couple of decades. The clunky old NHS ones have been consigned to the past, and replaced by digital models with fully adjustable volume controls and several pre-set features.
As completely independent hearing professionals, we have the flexibility to be able to give your honest, impartial, no obligation advice on the most suitable digital hearing aids for your needs. As well as restoring clarity, we have seen them have absolutely transformative effects on the lives of our patients over the years.
These hearing aids come in many shapes and sizes. From almost invisible in-ear receivers to tiny ones which rest just behind your ear, today’s devices are discreet, easy to use, and simple to maintain.
Whichever hearing aid model you choose, we will give you a full detailed demonstration of how it works, fit it for you, and always be on hand for any after care or tips on ear care.
