Enhanced Hearing Test
Your first step to better hearing is a complete hearing assessment.
Hearing loss comes on gradually and you don’t notice the day-to-day decline. Consequently, you will probably learn about your hearing loss from family and friends before you recognize it yourself. Our greatest concern is that when left untreated, hearing loss continues to worsen, leading to broken relationships, decreased productivity, risks of other serious health conditions, and cognitive and mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety.
Living a productive, rewarding, and independent lifestyle is the greatest benefit you will receive from seeking help for your hearing loss.
An Enhanced Hearing Test is a painless, non invasive hearing test.
What is a Full Audiology Assessment?
For any patient who did not pass their audiometric test, it is recommended they secure a full diagnostic test at The Spectacle Maker and Hearing Clinic to exclude an undiagnosed medical condition.
This is recommended as the Enhanced Hearing Test and are a more comprehensive assessment comprising of four tests:
- Pure Tone Audiometry (Air Conduction Test)
- Bone Conduction Test
- Tympanometry and Acoustic Reflex Tests which checks the functioning of the middle ear
- Speech Test
Full Audiology Examinations are conducted by our hearing care practitioner, and a full report is written up.
Each test takes 60 mins per person.
Why Do People Put Off Hearing Tests?
If you are like most people, you put off scheduling a hearing test due to misinformation about hearing loss and the value of detecting it early.
