Free Hearing Test

Do I have a hearing loss?

  • Otoscopy – examining the ear canal for wax occlusion
  • A hearing test at 4 frequencies (or pitch) at a screening level to identify the presence or absence of a hearing loss.

Comprehensive hearing test.

If your free hearing test identifies the presence of a hearing loss, we will recommend that you have a comprehensive hearing assessment.

If you are a pensioner or veteran you may be eligible for a free comprehensive hearing test - read more. Please call us on 1300761 021 for information and to arrange your appointment.

Why is it important to have a comprehensive hearing assessment?

Hearing is a vital part of your overall health and wellbeing and proper testing and monitoring by an audiologist should be a priority. We recommend that treating hearing loss should also be a priority. Untreated hearing loss may lead to;

  • Feelings of anxiety, social isolation, embarrassment and even depression
  • Communication difficulties at work with colleagues, clients, the public. Which in turn can lead to under-employment, unemployment and losses in income
  • Auditory deprivation which results in a loss of understanding of speech over time  - learn more....

Untreated hearing loss is also linked to dementia. People with a mild hearing loss are twice as likely to develop dementia as those with normal hearing. Treating hearing loss with well fitted hearing aids enables more social engagement and participation that in turn reduces the rate of cognitive decline.

Recent studies have shown the sooner you start wearing hearing aids the better the results you will obtain with the hearing aids and the better your overall wellbeing and quality of life.

 

What to expect at your hearing test appointment

Before you arrive for your appointment, take a moment to note situations or environments in which you have had difficulty hearing. We recommend that you bring a family member or friend to your appointment to share their observations with how your hearing loss is impacting them and to note important details and instructions that we will provide. 

Your comprehensive 1hr hearing test includes:

  • General and ear health information gathering.  You will be asked about your hearing history to understand any medical issues that could be affecting your hearing.  
  • A communication and hearing needs assessment may be used to determine when and where you are experiencing difficulty hearing.
  • Ear inspection of your outer ear, ear canal and eardrum will be examined using an Otoscope.
  • Your hearing will be tested in a soundproof booth. You will be asked to indicate when you can hear various levels of sounds in each ear. This is called audiometry and is a measure of your hearing levels and type of hearing loss.
  • We will also conduct speech audiometry which measures your ability to understand speech at various levels
  • Tympanometry measures how your eardrum is moving and the middle ear status and can identify certain middle ear conditions
  • Explanation of results.  Your hearing healthcare professional will explain the results with you and answer your questions
  • Recommendations and next steps will be discussed.  If you have a hearing loss your audiologist will discuss treatment options which may range from communication strategies, hearing aids and other assistive devices to a referral to your GP or a medical specialist if warranted
  • Report to your managing GP 

Treating hearing loss 

If you have a hearing loss, we will discuss your treatment plan options and answer all of your questions. Treatment options may range from communication strategies, hearing aids and other assistive devices to a referral to your GP or another medical specialist if warranted.

If the tests show that you could benefit from hearing aids, your clinician will review your options and together you will evaluate what styles suit your lifestyle and ear shape, what features and performance levels you require based on your hearing difficulties and which hearing aids fit your budget.  Read more about treating hearing loss with hearing aids.
