Continue reading below for a few things you can expect during a typical hearing evaluation in our Calgary audiologist’s office.
HISTORY & OVERVIEW
One of our certified audiologists will go over with you topics concerning your family history, your hearing history, your lifestyle and more, and we’ll review how you believe your hearing has been in recent months and/or years.
During our hearing evaluation test, one of our Calgary audiologists will place earphones in or on your ears, providing ample instructions on what to expect next. Essentially, any time you hear a sound or noise through the earphones, you’ll press a button letting us know that you heard it.
You will also repeat various types of words as well as a “listening in noise” test, which really gives us a comprehensive understanding of the “real world” hearing capabilities you have. We want to expose your ears to a variety of conditions to really get a grasp on what you are able (and unable) to hear.
After your hearing evaluation is complete, we’ll go over your individual test results with you. Our goal is to make helpful recommendations and a customized treatment plan that will guide you on what you should do next regarding your hearing.
Depending on your hearing levels, we may recommend hearing aids or customized earplugs. We’ll also provide you with any and all educational resources that can help you better understand your results, and we’ll provide advice on how to properly take care of your ears moving forward.
