Precision Hearing offer expert hearing assessments and advice in Sydney.
A hearing assessment evaluates your hearing threshold (softest audible sound) at different pitches, as well as your speech discrimination at normal conversational and amplified levels. Additionally, Impedance testing, the assessment of the middle ear, is also carried out which helps ascertain information about the function of the tympanic membrane, the ossicular chain and the Eustachian tube (the tube that connects the middle ear to the nasopharynx and helps equalise pressure when diving for instance).
These tests help determine the type and degree hearing loss, the possible causes of hearing deterioration, and help us choose the appropriate treatment for you.
A hearing assessment is painless, simple, not invasive and quick.
If a hearing loss is diagnosed, the most suitable form of hearing device will be discussed with you. These could include hearing aids, Bone Anchored Hearings (BAHA), Cochlear Implants or Assistive listening devices.
For both hearing aids and BAHA, Precision Hearing offers a trial period so you can test the device in all the environments where you have previously struggled to communicate in. During this time, the device can be adjusted, if needed, in order to achieve the best outcome for you.
