What is hearing loss?
The words ‘hearing loss’ or ‘hearing impairment’ are used to describe the inability to pick up sound or hear things around you, either completely or partially. There are varying degrees of hearing loss, ranging from mild to severe hearing loss and profoundly deaf. Individuals suffering from hearing loss can be affected in a number of ways and it can often cause emotional, physical and mental strain that can impact negatively on all areas of life.
Thankfully there are a number of solutions for every degree of hearing loss. The team at Click Hearing are fully trained to help you find the best solution for your individual needs.
Symptoms of Hearing Loss
- Do people seem to mumble or speak in a softer voice than they used to?
- When you are in a group, or in a crowded restaurant, is it difficult for you to follow the conversation?
- Do you often need to turn up the volume on your TV or radio?
- Do you find it difficult to pinpoint where a noise is coming from?
- Has someone close to you mentioned that you might have a problem with your hearing?
If you have answered YES to one or more of the above questions you could be suffering from hearing loss. Book online for a hearing test or call us for more information.
At Click Hearing we invest highly in the latest hearing test equipment and technology to ensure that you receive the diagnosis, help and support that you need.
As well as our online hearing test available below we offer two types of hearing tests at our practices, both offering an interpretation of your results using cutting edge fully calibrated equipment.
Our hearing screen takes no more than 15 minutes and is designed to quickly determine whether your hearing is operating efficiently or whether assistance may be required.
Our comprehensive hearing assessment includes so much more than just testing the quietest sounds you can hear. Due to the various reasons that hearing loss can occur we will perform a variety of tests including Otoscopy, Tympanometry, Acoustic Reflexes, Otoacoustic Emissions and Auditory Processing (more detail opposite) and provide you with a full Audiogram report.
If you believe that you or someone you know may be experiencing hearing loss it is important to get it checked out by a professional.
Audiometry (Tone or Speech) hearing test
Using tones of varying frequencies and volume, this test provides us with an evaluation of your sense of hearing and is carried out in a sound proof booth for the most accurate measurements.
This test is often carried out in conjunction with audiometry and is used to assess the function of the middle ear. We can also provide ipsi & contralateral reflexes and reflex decay on request.
Brainstem evoked response audiometry hearing test
This test uses electrodes that are placed on the scalp and behind the ears to measure neural responses to brief tones, available in outpatient clinics or theatre for objective tests or reviewing the growth of acoustic neuroma.
Enables us to view the condition of the outer ear and provides us with a permanent photographic record for future reference.
Otoacoustic emissions (DP, TE and SE) hearing tests for babies.
Used to test the function of the cochlea and other parts of the ear to investigate possible early noise damage and objective tinnitus assessment. Further hearing tests may be needed to determine if there is hearing loss or not.
