Tests are administered based on a patient's current hearing condition. This means tests are different for children, industrial workers, seniors and workers in other professions. Despite the differences, most tests do a thorough job of finding faults in the inner, middle and outer ear.
To maintain the quality of treatment, patients should schedule regular checkups. This provides an outlet for patients to update their audiologist about key changes with hearing preferences. Follow-up care is also an excellent time to discuss hearing accessories or add-ons.
Hearing Aid Dispensing Fitting
During the fitting, hearing devices get their final bit of programming. They are fully customized for the wearer, and fine-tuned for long-term use. To further increase hearing accuracy, live speech mapping is used to visualize the entire process.
Hearing Aid Repairs
When hearing aids become problematic, repairs can be done onsite. If the damage is extensive, the device is sent off to the manufacturer for a full repair. Audiologists provide extensive options for loaner hearing aids during the repair period.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
Finding the right hearing aid takes time and patience. An evaluation for hearing aids is when an audiologist goes over the many styles, features and models of hearing products. The evaluation can also serve as a trial period before getting customized versions of a hearing device.
In Office Services
Hearing aid owners can get the most out of their device by using in-office services. Performance tuning, maintenance and general information are always helpful additions. The hearing industry is constantly growing, and the office is a huge resource of information.
Tinnitus Evaluation and Management
Tinnitus affects millions of people worldwide. It is the perception of noise in one or both ears, with the possibility of more serious underlying conditions. Testing is required to get the most effective treatment for the condition.
VNG - Balance Evaluations and Assessment
Videonystagmography is used to test for involuntary eye movements called nystagmus. A disorder in the vestibular system can lead to balance-related disorders like vertigo, tinnitus or other similar conditions. The three main parts of a VNG test are ocular, positional and caloric.
