Audiology: Hearing Tests and Hearing Aids

What is it?

Audiology is the science of hearing. Audiologists conduct hearing tests to determine whether a person can hear sounds within an entire normal range. If this is not the case, the audiologist denounces which sounds (high range, middle, small range) are inaudible. He or she also figures out why these sounds are not registering, often due to a problem with some part of the ear. From there, solutions are proposed as to the best remedies and course of action. Hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other devices are all options for allowing people to hear sounds that they wouldn’t otherwise due to accidents, old age, etc.

Hearing tests come in various forms. Dr. Pollack will perform an initial consult to determine which services will be the most effective and help to you. If hearing aids are a possibility, he will take great care to inform you about all of your options and walk you through the entire process so that no details are left out. You are sure to feel comfortable and well taken care of through all of your interactions.

How long does it take?

A hearing test can be done in less than an hour. If a patient would benefit from hearing aids, the process for receiving them can be slightly longer and a collection of visits. Usually, a hearing test starts with a physical examination of the ears. Then, a combination of tests is done with sounds at different frequencies. Actual tests depend on the patient and specific needs. Following the tone tests, Dr. Pollack will have a clearer picture of which options would best suit you.

What about recovery time?

After a hearing test, there is no recovery time. If you would benefit from hearing aids, there may be an adjustment period, but no actual recovery time. The procedure is typically non-invasive.
