Services and treatments

Hearing loss is surprisingly common with 1 in 6 Australians having some type of hearing loss.

There are two common types of hearing loss which are conductive and sensorineural.

Conductive hearing loss is caused by obstructions or malfunctions in the outer or middle ear. It can be caused by middle ear infections and malfunctions, damaged ear drum and impacted ear wax. Sensorineural is caused by damage to the hair cells in the inner ear. It can also be caused by exposure to loud noise or aging.

For your first visit, it is a good idea to bring any relevant medical reports you may have and a list of questions!

What will happen during my first appointment?

See answer

In order to assess your hearing, our audiologist will play a series of pure whistling tones and all you will need to do is to press a buzzer when you can hear them. From this hearing test, she will be able to tell you:

  • Hearing capacity in each ear
  • How well you hear the loudness and pitch of different sounds
  • The impact your hearing has on your communication

Questions are always welcome and the best time to ask is during your appointment.
