Full Hearing Assessment
If a hearing loss is detected during your Hearing Health Check, you have been diagnosed previously or currently own hearing aids, you’ll be invited for a Full Hearing Assessment. This appointment lasts 75 minutes, and is carried out by one of our expert Audiologists. Like our Hearing Health Check, this appointment is also free, but this time we’ll go into more depth to try to understand your hearing loss. It’s helpful to bring along a partner, family member or friend who can support in the discussion about how well you’re hearing.
During the appointment, your Audiologist will explain what will happen during your appointment, discuss your lifestyle and any problems or changes you may have noticed in your hearing. They will then take a look inside your ears to check how healthy they are before putting your ears to the test in our sound booth. During this test, your Audiologist will play a series of sounds at various pitches through headphones, and will ask you to press a button whenever you hear a sound. This allows your Audiologist to measure the thresholds of your hearing, how you react to different sounds and how well you can hear at specific frequencies. Your results will then be plotted on an audiogram which is a chart that represents your hearing ability.
If required, your Audiologist may then carry out a further test by placing a vibrating pad behind your ear to test your bone conductivity. Once complete, these results alongside your audiogram will be reviewed and discussed in detail to determine the extent and the type of hearing loss you may have.
Depending on your hearing test results, you’re Audiologist may recommend hearing aids to improve your hearing, this will be discussed and a demonstration of hearing aids will be offered with no obligation to buy.
