What to Expect at Your Hearing Test

  1. 1. What To Expect At Your Hearing Test
  2. 2. Easy as 1, 2, 3… The process of having your hearing tested is completed in 3 easy steps.
  3. 3. Step 1: Welcome and Case History After you arrive at the office: • The front desk staff will hand you some forms asking for personal, medical, and insurance information. • The hearing specialist will then accompany you into a room. • The hearing specialist will ask about your hearing loss and what you want to achieve from treatment.
  4. 4. Step 2: Testing Testing will consist of: • Otoscopy – the visual examination of the outer ear, ear canal, and eardrum. • Tympanometry – the measure of how the eardrum and middle ear respond to pressure changes. (small pressure changes delivered by a small device inserted into the ear) • Audiometry – the measurement of your ability to hear different sounds. The test is administered in a sound proof room and sounds are delivered through headphones.
  5. 5. Step 3: Reviewing Results and Planning Treatment Once the testing is complete, your hearing specialist will review your results with you. You will receive a copy of your audiogram that will look similar to the picture to the right. Once the specifics of your hearing loss are determined, you will collaborate with your hearing specialist to select the best treatment options for your needs, preferences, and goals.
  6. 6. Hearing Aids If you require hearing aids, your hearing specialist will work with you to select the best model. Modern hearing aids are highly effective, discreet, and affordable, equipped with amazing digital technology. Once your hearing aids are selected, your hearing specialist will create a custom mold and will professionally program the hearing aid to match your unique hearing loss, similar to how a pair of prescription glasses are tailored to your eyesight. Last, your hearing specialist will provide all of the instructions you’ll need to properly manage and care for your new hearing aids.
