Your hearing health is important. If your hearing loss goes untreated for too long your brain may permanently lose its ability to interpret sounds and hear normally. When you come in for your hearing test, our first step is to discuss any hearing concerns you may have. Then we look in your ears and perform a series of easy and painless tests to see what type of hearing loss you have, if any. Rest assured, you may not have a hearing loss at all. Hearing issues can result from ears being impacted with wax. If this is the case, you will likely need only assistance to flush the wax away. If we do determine that you have a hearing loss, we will talk with you about our findings and ask you more questions about your lifestyle and interests. Why so much conversation about your hearing? It’s one of the most important things audiologists can do for their patients to ensure that we identify the hearing solution that is right for you. People who live a quiet lifestyle, e.g., spending time watching TV and engaging in quiet hobbies such as woodworking or gardening, and have conversation primarily with their spouses or families in a household atmosphere are going to have very different listening needs than someone who spends a lot of time in restaurants or at sporting events. Asking questions helps us to identify the best possible hearing solution for your unique needs!
Tympanometry is a diagnostic test to assess the function of the middle ear system. This test is performed by inserting a tympanometer probe in the ear canal. The tympanometer changes the pressure in the ear, generates a pure tone, and measures the eardrum responses to the sound at different pressures.
