The Importance of a Hearing Test
Have you ever asked yourself, “Do I need a hearing test?” We go to the dentist regularly and get annual checkups at the doctor’s office – hearing tests shouldn’t be any different! Unfortunately, hearing loss does worsen over time, so it can change from year to year. A few other factors that can worsen your hearing loss are frequent exposure to loud noises, illness, injury or medications. That’s why it’s so important to test it annually.
If you already wear hearing aids it’s especially important to come to see us regularly. Your hearing may have changed since we last tested it. It’s also possible that your hearing aids might not be working as well for you as they were. Just like you would get a new prescription for your glasses every year, we need to program any new hearing loss into your hearing aids every year.
When you come into our office we do a comprehensive hearing test, which includes: air conduction, bone conduction, speech reception thresholds, word recognition, MCL, UCL, and speech-in-noise testing. Before all of that, we’ll look in your ears with our video otoscope to check for wax and any visible abnormalities.
All of these terms may be unfamiliar to you right now, but when you come in to have your hearing tested at Hearing Group we will thoroughly explain the testing process, test results and give you our recommendation based on those results.
A Little Bit About Hearing Aids
Everyone’s hearing loss is different, and that’s why we offer a variety of solutions tailored to each individual. Some people might only need one aid, while others need two. Some people may need to be set up with a BiCROS or CROS configuration to hear their best.
The best solution for one person isn’t the same as the best solution for the next person. That can be because of budget differences, more or less hearing loss, different kinds of hearing loss, style preferences, or many other things. Whatever your hearing needs, Brandi at Hearing Group in Derby, KS, is well-equipped to find the best hearing aid solution for you.
