An Audiometric Screening
(Hearing Test) can determine whether the hearing difficulty you may be experiencing could be caused by an obstruction, such as earwax, or by damage to the ear canal or eardrum.
The purpose of an audiometry exam is to test your ability to hear sounds at different frequencies and determine whether you have experienced hearing loss. This non-invasive exam is simple and painless and on average, can be completed in under 10 minutes. This test will aid in the identification of hearing loss and communication disabilities as well as help to determine the type and extent of hearing loss sustained, and whether or not corrective hearing aids are indicated.
Hearing plays a major role in our quality of life, from our emotional well-being and physical health to our careers and leisure activities. Yet millions of people who have hearing loss let it go untreated, despite research showing links between untreated hearing loss and an increased for risk depression and anxiety.
