Challenging lifestyle

Moderate lifestyle

Communicating in small groups and participating in social gatherings is important to you. You enjoy activities like shopping or going to the theater.

Quiet lifestyle

Most of your time is spent at home or in a quiet environment, but you need to be able to hear in one-on-one settings.

Favorite activities

You might enjoy going to a concert or going out dining with your friends or family.

What to expect during your first consultation

A full professional hearing evaluation usually takes less than an hour.

1. Your hearing care professional will probably start by asking you a few questions about your general health and lifestyle, and the health of your ears.

2. Next, he’ll look into your ear to examine the canal that runs to the eardrum. He’ll be looking for more clues about your hearing health. The ear examination doesn’t hurt at all.

3. For the actual test you’ll be asked to wear headphones and listen to a series of tones to evaluate the sensitivity of your hearing at different frequency levels.

The hearing test results are shown on an audiogram, a graph that, in most cases, will be presented to you right after the test. If you do have a hearing loss, your hearing care professional will be able to tell you if it can be treated with a hearing aid, and if so, which type of hearing aid will suit you best.
