What is a hearing care professional?

Finding a good hearing care professional is an important first step in managing hearing loss, but who are hearing care professionals and what do they do?  Hearing care professionals are specially and uniquely trained in the treatment of hearing and balance. Regardless of which type of hearing care professional you see, he or she can match you with the hearing aids that are appropriate for your hearing loss, and provide support to help you get the most from their use.

How to choose a hearing care professional?

Hearing care professionals can be found in many different settings such as hospitals and hearing centers, hearing aid retailers, public and private schools and universities and in the various military industries. Finding the help and support of the right hearing care professional can make a profound difference in your hearing experience.

What to expect during the consultation to a hearing care professional?

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.
