Frequently Asked Questions
What is a hearing assessment?
A hearing assessment is a comprehensive evaluation of your hearing abilities. It involves various tests conducted by a hearing healthcare professional to assess your hearing sensitivity, identify any hearing loss, and determine the type and degree of hearing impairment you may have.
Who needs a hearing assessment?
Anyone who experiences signs of hearing difficulties or suspects they may have hearing loss should consider having a hearing assessment. It is especially important for individuals who frequently struggle to hear conversations, have difficulty understanding speech in noisy environments, frequently ask others to repeat themselves, or experience ringing in the ears (tinnitus).
How often should I have a hearing assessment?
It is generally recommended to have a baseline hearing assessment in adulthood and then undergo periodic assessments as you age or if you notice changes in your hearing. For most adults, having a hearing assessment every 1-3 years is advisable. However, if you have existing hearing loss or other risk factors, more frequent assessments may be recommended.
What should I expect during a hearing assessment?
During a hearing assessment, you can expect a variety of tests to be conducted, which may include pure-tone audiometry to measure your hearing sensitivity, speech audiometry to assess your ability to understand speech, middle ear tests to evaluate the function of your eardrum and middle ear, and possibly additional tests depending on your specific needs.
What are the signs of hearing loss?
Signs of hearing loss can include difficulty understanding speech, frequently asking others to repeat themselves, needing to increase the volume of the television or radio, withdrawal from conversations or social situations, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and experiencing difficulties hearing in noisy environments.
