“I was so thrilled when I realized how
clear and crisp everything sounds.”
Are you afraid you’re not going to pass a hearing test? Don’t be. A hearing test is just like an eye test or a blood test. You can’t pass or fail.
The test is an assessment your audiologist makes of your physical condition, nothing more.
Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
When you arrive for your hearing exam, you will be greeted by the front office staff and asked to fill out several forms, including those that record your personal information, medical history and verify your insurance.
As your hearing exam begins, your audiologist will review your personal information with you and will ask you questions designed to discover the specific types of environments in which you may be experiencing hearing loss and hearing problems.
Next, your audiologist may look into your ears with an otoscope. This instrument is used to see the ear canal and the ear drum and whether or not there is ear wax obstructing the canal. Sometimes the audiologist will have a video otoscope so you can see inside your ear as well!
Hearing Test Results
The results of your tests will be recorded on a form called an audiogram, which the audiologist will review with you. The audiogram reflects your hearing loss in frequencies and decibels. You will be shown the type, pattern and degree of hearing loss, as well as the percentage of normal conversational speech that you are still able to hear.
Your audiologist will then relate these results to your concerns about your hearing.
