The Symptoms of Hearing Loss

You may be experiencing hearing loss if:

  • You frequently ask others to repeat themselves
  • Find yourself constantly turning up the volume on the TV, radio, or stereo
  • Are having trouble following conversations in crowded rooms or in cars
  • Find yourself raising your voice to inappropriate volumes,
  • Have new difficulty understanding women or children

Hearing loss can be profoundly isolating and disorienting – but there is relief available with the support of your dedicated audiologist. Schedule a hearing evaluation right away to take control of your hearing health. With testing, evaluation, diagnosis, and sensitive consultation, your audiologist will help guide you toward the right treatments for your lifestyle, including the latest technology in hearing aids.

When Was Your Last Hearing Test?

The American Speech-Language-Hearing Association recommends that all adults over 50 get hearing tests every three years. Beyond regular maintenance, hearing tests can be valuable at any age if you have experienced changes in your hearing, tinnitus, or pain in the ears. You deserve the highest caliber of hearing health services – and that’s exactly what you’ll get from your audiologist at Texas ENT Specialists.

What to Expect During your Hearing Evaluation

Your audiologist will always customize your treatment to your unique needs, but the following tests and procedures are usually part of the average hearing evaluation:

Otoscopy: checking in the ear canal for potential obstructions 
Tympanometry: testing to measure how well the eardrums move.
Pure Tone: Testing to measure the hearing levels in each ear.
Speech Discrimination: A test to evaluate how well you hear/understand spoken words.
Bone Conduction: A test measuring how well your inner ears respond to sound.

Your certified audiologist will also use this time to get to know you and your lifestyle. With this knowledge and the understanding provided by testing, they will make expert recommendations for treatment, including hearing aids and other technology.
