Even when wearing hearing aids, your hearing can change over time. During your aftercare appointment, we will reassess your hearing and make any adjustments required to your hearing aids to ensure you are getting the most out of them. We will also provide a clean and check up on your hearing aids to give you peace of mind that they are working to maximum efficiency.
Hearing test journey – what happens during our assessments.
Hearing changes can be so subtle and happen at any age. It can take some time to be aware of your hearing loss. If you find yourself feeling isolated and avoiding situations that you used to enjoy or finding telephone conversations hard work; then you will find it surprisingly easy to resolve.
Hearing loss can affect anyone and is often ignored as people continue to struggle with daily life before taking action. It can take 7 to 10 years before someone with hearing loss seeks treatment. Yet regular hearing tests would help you stay connected to the world and all its enjoyment.

Hearing Test Results
The results of your hearing test will be explained on an audiogram (as shown below), this will demonstrate your own unique hearing pattern. We will discuss the findings thoroughly and recommend any kind of treatment if necessary. Sometimes, a sense of hearing loss may be caused by an infection or ear wax which will be highlighted during the test. If that is the case, we can help with the process to resolve the hearing issue.
If the hearing test highlights a hearing loss, we will make recommendations and discuss the options for treatment.
