Whether you are entering pre-school, enjoying your Golden Years, or somewhere in between, it's important to have a hearing examination at least once every year. Hearing loss can sneak up on you, and unless you have it checked, you may not know you have a problem until it's progressed to a level that can make it difficult to correct.
A hearing test is a quick, painless and non-invasive test performed by an audiologist. The test begins with a thorough case history, which provides the hearing professional with specific health information that may provide insight into hearing loss causes and will assist them in determining which tests should be performed.
Following the case history, the hearing professional will examine your ear canals and eardrums with a special light called an otoscope. Next the levels of hearing in each of your ears are measured in a sound treated test booth. During this test, a series of tones of different pitches, as well as speech signals are presented to each ear through headphones. You will be asked to respond to the signals by either pushing a button, raising your hand or in the case of speech signals, repeating what you heard. You will be asked to respond to the lowest level that you can hear which determines your hearing thresholds. Thresholds for each pitch and ear are plotted on a graph called an audiogram.
Further tests may be conducted during the hearing test. Your ability to understand words or sentences at different volume levels may be assessed to determine how clearly you hear speech.
Following the tests, the hearing professional will discuss the results with you and may provide further recommendations such as medical referral or treatment options like hearing aids.
If you suspect you have hearing loss it is important to have your hearing tested as soon as possible. The use-it or lose-it principle does apply to our hearing; the sooner you treat hearing loss, the better the outcome of treatment.
