Did you know that more Americans suffer from hearing problems (and other related issues) than heart disease, paralysis, blindness, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis combined? This is absolutely staggering and should be taken into consideration when it comes to your hearing health.
If you believe you may be experiencing hearing loss and other hearing problems, please do not hesitate to contact Fullerton Hearing Center for a professional hearing evaluation.
What is a Hearing Evaluation?
A hearing evaluation is the initial means to diagnose your individual hearing needs. From the evaluation, we can determine what type of hearing loss is present and its severity. The evaluation tests allow us to hone in on your personalized treatment plan to a solution.
What Tests Will Be Completed?
The particular types of tests conducted will be determined based on your age, and current hearing status. The test will help articulate the degree, type, and condition of the ear canal and middle ear. It is the first step in identifying hearing loss and learning how to correct it to improve your quality of life.
Types of tests include:
- Air Conduction Testing
- Bone Conduction Testing
- Speech Testing
- Real-Ear Measurements
- Tympanometry Testing
What Happens After the Evaluation?
Expect the evaluation to last approximately 30-60 minutes. After the evaluation is complete, we will spend time discussing your results as well as our recommendations for further action. Please, feel free to ask questions during this time. We want our care to reflect your personal lifestyle as well!
