Earwax keeps the ears lubricated, repels dirt and debris, and protects you from infection caused by bacteria and germs. However, it is possible to produce too much earwax that can build up and impact your ability to hear. It can cause other issues with your hearing. Call us to find out if you need a consultation.
Diagnostic audiologic evaluations
A hearing test is the first step in identifying whether there is a hearing loss and, if so, in determining the form, degree and specification. There are many forms of hearing tests, but a pure-tone test and a speech recognition test are the most common. These tests are simple to complete and non-intrusive. After the evaluation, we will show you your hearing ability in a graph called an audiogram.
Hearing aid evaluation and selection
If a permanent hearing loss is shown in your audiogram, hearing aids may be recommended. We will explain why you hear sounds you find difficult to hear, and what treatment options are available. We will help you select your best style, features and quality of hearing aids based on your hearing loss, your lifestyle and your financial situation.
Hearing aid dispensing and fitting
Once you have chosen some hearing aids, we will program them to your exact hearing loss. After testing the hearing aids, we can make adjustments to ensure that the settings work for you. Good hearing however, is a process. It may take a few more visits to get the sound exactly right for your needs.
Hearing aid repairs
Even if you take great care with your hearing aids and maintain regular maintenance, you may still end up wearing them out with normal use. We can help with common hearing aid repairs.
The cost of fixing a broken or damaged hearing aid varies according to a few things: the insurance on the hearing aid, the damage to the system and the costs of replacing the parts needed. You would also have low repair costs if you bought your hearing aid from us and it is still under warranty.
