Most Common Questions
Signs of a potential hearing problem include difficulty understanding conversations, frequently asking people to repeat themselves, turning up the volume on electronic devices, and experiencing ringing or buzzing sounds in the ears (tinnitus). If you suspect a hearing problem, it is recommended to schedule an appointment for a comprehensive hearing evaluation.
A hearing evaluation typically involves a series of tests conducted by an audiologist to assess your hearing abilities. These tests may include pure-tone audiometry, speech audiometry, middle ear assessment, and other specialized assessments. The results help determine the nature and severity of your hearing loss, if present, and guide appropriate treatment options.
Audiology is the branch of healthcare that focuses on the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of hearing and balance disorders. Audiologists are professionals trained to assess and manage various conditions related to hearing and balance.
Hearing aids are a common and effective solution for many individuals with hearing loss. However, the appropriate treatment depends on the specific type and severity of the hearing loss. Audiologists will recommend the most suitable intervention, which may include hearing aids, assistive listening devices, cochlear implants, or other options.
While some forms of hearing loss are unavoidable, certain preventive measures can help protect your hearing. These include minimizing exposure to loud noises, wearing ear protection in noisy environments, avoiding the use of cotton swabs to clean the ears, and seeking prompt treatment for ear infections or other related conditions.
Vertigo is a sensation of spinning or dizziness that can be accompanied by nausea, imbalance, or unsteadiness. It is often caused by disorders in the inner ear or the vestibular system. Our clinic offers comprehensive evaluations and treatment options for vertigo and balance disorders.
