Hearing Tests & Hearing Aids
Just because we know what we do every day doesn’t necessarily mean that you know what we do every day! See below for a list of everything we do here every day. Our goal is to make sure that we’re the only place you need to visit for all your hearing healthcare needs.
Do you hear a ringing, roaring, clicking, or hissing sound in your ears? Do you hear this sound often or all the time? Does the sound bother you a lot? If you answer yes to these questions, you may have tinnitus (tin-NY-tus).
A balance disorder is a disturbance that causes an individual to feel unsteady, giddy, woozy, or have a sensation of movement, spinning, or floating. Diagnosis of a balance disorder is complicated because there are many kinds of balance disorders, and there are many ways to treat balance disorders.
You’ve been told that your child needs to have their hearing checked. This can be a scary time especially when your baby is just a few days old. We understand how you’re feeling and rest assured we’ll promise to answer all your questions and to make sure your visit with us is as stress free as possible.
Videonystagmography evaluates the function of the vestibular portion of the inner ear for patients who are experiencing symptoms of vertigo, unsteadiness, dizziness, and other balance disorders. Hearing evaluation tests are frequently combined with vestibular studies for the identification of inner ear disorders.
Otoacoustic Emission Testing
Otoacoustic emissions (OAE)’s are low-level sounds generated by the outer hair cells of the cochlea (inner ear) in response to auditory stimuli. OAEs are present in nearly all normal-hearing ears. Absent OAEs indicate hearing loss and/or middle ear pathology.
The shape of your outer ear and ear canal are unique to you.
Earmolds are typically used for one of two reasons:
- To keep things out (noise and water are the two big issues).
- To keep things in (amplified sound from a hearing aid).
Aural rehabilitation or “aural rehab” is the process of identifying and diagnosing a hearing loss and then providing different types of therapies to patients who are hearing impaired. We use aural rehab in our practice as an important component in the overall care of our patients.
Assistive Listening Devices
Several types of ALDs are available to improve sound transmission for people with hearing loss. Some are designed for large facilities such as classrooms, theaters, places of worship, and airports. Other types are intended for personal use in small settings and for one-on-one conversations
Bluetooth technology is a wireless communications system intended to replace the cables connecting many different types of devices, from mobile phones and headsets to heart monitors and medical equipment.
As a global standard, Bluetooth technology is in billions of products worldwide, including virtually every mobile phone?
