HEARING TESTS CALGARY
Why would I need a hearing test? Most of us have asked this question, especially when we think we hear fine. Well, you go for a physical every year with your doctor and have your eyes checked every one or two years, right? Many people neglect to remember to get their hearing checked routinely. Your ears are just as susceptible to damage and aging as any other part of your body. Hearing loss can also creep up on you slowly, robbing you of your ability to hear with little warning. Hearing tests for Calgary residents can help.
The ideal solution for hearing loss
There’s no wrong time to book an appointment. Hearing loss can hit suddenly or gradually, making your quality of life incredibly frustrating. Whether you’re just starting to suspect hearing loss, or you’ve been battling it for years, we can help. Children can also benefit from getting hearing tests, as even they can be affected by hearing loss early in life. At Pindrop Calgary, our professional audiologists are fully trained to provide hearing tests for patients of all ages.
What is involved in a hearing test?
Your hearing test will consist of several steps.
- Medical history: The first step in our hearing tests is to review your medical records to determine your past ear health. This will also allow our experts to determine if there has been damage in the past that may potentially be linked to your dwindling hearing.
- Physical examination: Performing a physical examination of your ears, ear canal and eardrums can help visualize any potential issues or damage. Using an otoscope, our audiologists can determine your overall ear health and any other issues that might be reducing your hearing, such as wax buildup.
- Audio test: After your physical examination, we then move on to a hearing test, like reading a chart at the optometrist. It’s very similar to an eye test. Our audiologists will play sounds in one ear and cover the other, or you will be asked to identify spoken words or phrases. From these tests, we can determine the severity of your hearing loss and determine the best solution for you.
Following hearing tests Calgary residents will have their results explained in depth by our experts. You will also have the chance to ask questions, seek advice and more.
