Hearing tests at Kalady Audiology
During a hearing evaluation, you will be tested for the type and extent of hearing loss. The testing is simple and brief, in general, and involves your ability to hear tones and speech at various levels. This gives your audiologist the specifics of your particular hearing problem. At Kalady Audiology, the hearing tests provide our audiologist with a complete picture of what your hearing health is and how we can help you communicate better.
Discussing your hearing test results
If our hearing tests indicate you have a hearing loss, our audiologist will sit down with you to explain the results and what they mean. We will also look for any possible medical issues that could be causing your hearing loss. Next, our audiologist will discuss what options are available to help you hear better, what we can do to improve your hearing ability. We may recommend amplification if we feel you would benefit from it.
Hearing aid evaluation at Kalady Audiology
After we’ve discussed your hearing test results and if you decide on pursuing amplification, we will perform a hearing aid evaluation. This will be a separate appointment and will involve evaluating your performance with multiple hearing aids. Additionally, we will assess your lifestyle and listening needs to help determine what the best model and level of technology would be for you.
Hearing aid fitting
At the hearing aid fitting, we will instruct you on insertion and removal, along with teaching you the proper care and maintenance of your new hearing aids. Hearing aids are finely tuned instruments and often need adjustments over time. We provide these services quickly and thoroughly for every patient.
Hearing protection at Kalady Audiology
Finally, we understand that hearing protection is the best way to preserve the hearing ability you currently have. The Kalady staff is trained to help you with earplugs and other items designed to offer this protection. We will evaluate your lifestyle and risk factors and recommend the best hearing protection for your personal needs.
