If you feel your hearing is OK but would still like it checked or if you feel there may be a loss but you’re not quite ready for a Full Hearing Consultation, then you may wish to have a Hearing Test also called a Hearing Health Check. This lasts roughly 15-20 minutes and is a shortened version of a Full Hearing Consultation.
Hearing Test Procedure:
- We ask you a few medical questions related to your ears and your hearing.
- An otoscope is used to look into your ears and examine their general health.
- The ‘screening’ hearing test confirms if your hearing is within a normal range by testing key frequencies.
- If a loss is found, it may highlight that you would benefit from a full hearing assessment or referral to your doctor. We can discuss your options with you, allowing you to decide your next step to better hearing.
