What happens at a hearing test?
A consultation with Leinster Hearing Services can take up to 90mins.
A case history will be taken initially followed by an ear canal examination.
Hearing loss can some times be caused by a wax blockage within the ear which should be treated by your GP or practice nurse.
Following the ear exam we will conduct an audiometric test (a computer aided hearing test).
The results will be explained and if there is a treatable loss we will then discuss treatment options.
We will also then be in a position to provide a hearing aid demonstration where the client gets to experience what it is like to wear a modern hearing instrument.
Are two ears better than one?
We are born with two eyes and two ears.
Two eyes help to give us a better visual picture of the world.
Two ears allows us to hear more clearly, vital to the understanding of speech.
We also need two ears to tell us what direction sound is coming from and how far away it is, this is essential to keep us safe and secure in our environment.
What grants and tax relief are available to help with the purchase of hearing aids?
