If you or someone you know is struggling to hear then this should not be ignored. Having your ears checked and your hearing checked should be as regular as you attend eye or dental appointments.
We offer a quick Hearing Screener if it is you're unsure and want a quick check to see if there is a hearing loss. Alternatively, if you are already a hearing aid user or if you know you have hearing loss and would like to sit down with our Audiologists and have a more thorough consultation, this is also FREE.
Hearing loss is a journey and we need to understand your perspective and what you are experiencing on a day to day basis. By taking the time to discuss this with you, we can explore the best recommendations possible to help you hear better and engage in your daily activities with more enjoyment.
We understand how isolating and frustrating hearing loss can be and a simple hearing test with Hear Pure can establish if your hearing loss needs immediate assistance.
When you visit us for a hearing evaluation or consultation, we will ask you a series of questions to gather information about your hearing health and any potential hearing-related concerns you may have. These questions help us assess your hearing and determine the best course of action for your specific needs. Here are some common questions an audiologist may ask:
Medical History: We typically start by asking about your medical history, including any existing medical conditions, medications you are taking, and any previous ear-related issues or surgeries.
Hearing Concerns: We will ask about any specific hearing concerns or problems you've been experiencing, such as difficulty hearing in noisy environments, ringing in the ears (tinnitus), dizziness, or balance issues.
Family History: What about your family history of hearing loss - some hearing conditions can be hereditary.
Noise Exposure: Your history of exposure to loud noises, such as working in a noisy environment, attending loud concerts, or using firearms without hearing protection can also give you long term hearing issues.
Lifestyle and Activities: Questions about your lifestyle and daily activities can help us understand how your hearing may be affecting your quality of life. For example, we will ask if you have trouble hearing conversations, watching TV, or using the phone.
Ear Health: We will inquire about any ear-related symptoms, such as pain, discomfort, earwax buildup, or recurring ear infections.
Balance Issues: If you're experiencing dizziness or balance problems, we will ask about the frequency and severity of these episodes.
Medications: What medications are you currently taking, as certain drugs can affect hearing.
Trauma: Questions about any past head injuries or trauma to the ears may be relevant.
Ear Protection: Do you use ear protection in loud environments or when using loud equipment?
Tinnitus: If you have tinnitus (ringing or buzzing in the ears), we will ask about the nature and duration of these sounds.
Changes in Hearing: We will want to know if you've noticed any recent changes in your hearing or if the hearing loss has been gradual or sudden.
Social and Emotional Impact: What about how your hearing difficulties are impacting your social interactions, mood, and overall well-being.
Hobbies and Interests: We will ask about your hobbies and interests to better understand your specific hearing needs. For instance, if you're a musician, they'll want to know how hearing loss affects your ability to play or enjoy music.
Communication Strategies: Finally we will ask about strategies you've been using to cope with hearing difficulties, such as reading lips or asking people to repeat themselves.
These questions help us gather a comprehensive picture of your hearing health and tailor their assessment and recommendations to your individual circumstances. Based on your responses, we will then conduct a hearing test and evaluations to determine the extent of your hearing loss and the most appropriate treatment or management options for you.
Remember we are here to help and your family and friends want you to hear them too!
