Hearing Tests

Our comprehensive diagnostic hearing assessments are provided by a university qualified Audiologist. We do more than a basic hearing screening for hearing aids. Our appointments are longer, so our Audiologist has more time with you to deliver an extensive hearing assessment. We also provide free* hearing tests and devices to eligible pensioners through the HSP.

Children’s hearing test

Children's Hearing Test

Specifically designed for children over the age of 5 years, our comprehensive children’s hearing assessments are available without the need for a referral.

1. Hearing Assessment History

Firstly, the audiologist will ask you about your ears and your hearing. It is important the audiologist understands your concerns. So, you may wish to talk about your hearing experiences and where you’ve noticed changes or difficulties.

2. Ototscopy

The first part of the physical examination is of the external auditory canal. This connects the outer ear to the eardrum. Our audiologist will examine your external auditory canals and eardrums using a video otoscope. This way, you can also see the inside of your ears and what the audiologist is looking at.

3. Pure Tone Audiometry

This assessment measures hearing threshold levels. Furthermore, pure tone audiometry enables the audiologist to assess the degree, type and configuration of any hearing loss. So, this part of the hearing test provides the basis for the diagnosis and management of your hearing. All you need to do is press a button when you hear sounds presented at varying levels.

4. Speech Audiometry

At this stage of the hearing test, your ability to hear and understand speech at soft conversational levels is also assessed. This test requires you to repeat the words you hear through the test headphones.

5. Tympanometry

By creating variations in air pressure along the ear canal, this examination evaluates the condition of the bones in the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane).

6. Audiologist Recommendation

The audiologist will discuss the results of your hearing assessment with you. The outcomes of your assessment will determine what options or next steps exist for you. Rest assured, our audiologist will discuss the full range of options available, so you can make an informed decision.
