Your Healthy Hearing Check-up
Regular hearing health checkups are an important part of good hearing health care. Your hearing check-up includes the following:
1. Hearing test.
Do you think your hearing has changed? We’ll compare the results to your previous hearing levels. If we find a change, we’ll recommend treatment or adjust your hearing aids to compensate for any change in hearing.
2. Re-program your hearing aids.
Sometimes a re-programming of your hearing aids based on a change in your hearing is helpful. Many people find they hear a little better after this adjustment.
3. Ear canal examination.
Ear wax is one of the most common causes of hearing aid feedback (whistle) and hearing aid repairs.
4. Clean and adjust your hearing aids.
Regular cleaning minimizes hearing aid repairs and makes sure that your hearing aids are providing the maximum benefit. Cleaning your hearing aids sometimes provides a small but noticeable improvement.
5. Review other sources of help.
This is a good time to ask about telephone amplifiers, clock and smoke alarms, and devices for television and group settings.
