A comprehensive assessment of your hearing will take around 90 minutes. Sarah-Jane will use this time to find out as much as she can about your hearing difficulties, any past medical issues with your ears and what you hope to achieve from your appointment. Whether it is just for sound advice and a routine hearing check or whether you are ready to discuss amplification and proceed in obtaining better hearing, Sarah-Jane will help you every step of the way.
What does a hearing assessment involve?
A hearing test is a scientific evaluation that takes around 30 minutes to complete. Firstly, Sarah-Jane will have a look in your ears with a special camera to assess the condition of your ear canal and ear drum. Then, a set of headphones will be placed over your ears and you will be given a button so that you can respond to any tones you can hear, even if they sound as though they are coming from far away! Once both ears have been assessed Sarah-Jane will explain your results to you in detail and give you best advice based on these results.
