Custom Earmolds and Earplugs
Hearing protection is a very important preventive measure for individuals constantly exposed to loud noise. One of the leading causes of hearing loss is prolonged exposure to loud noise. Our office is equipped to create a custom ear mold specifically for you. This will ensure comfort throughout the day and ultimately long term hearing protection
Evaluation for Auditory Processing Disorders (APD)
APD evaluations are most commonly performed for school-age children, although many adults are also tested. A person with suspected APD has normal hearing, but does not seem to hear well or understand what is heard. Hearing and understanding may be inconsistent. Testing for APD consists of a hearing test and several tasks where words or sentences must be repeated in different listening conditions.
Evaluation and Fitting for Musician's Ear Plugs
Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods, which may put them at risk for permanent hearing damage. Musician’s ear plugs are custom-made devices that help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience.
Hearing Aid Dispensing & Fitting
Once you select your new hearing aid our expert staff will fit and program your hearing aid to your exact specifications. Each hearing aid is programmed to the prescription that you received during your exam. However, this process will allow us to make minor adjustments to make sure it is just right for you.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Our office also includes minor in house repairs based on evaluation. Like most things, regular maintenance of your hearing aid will allow you to ensure that your hearing aids will last a long time.
Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection
During a hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who will discuss with you the different styles, colors, technologies, and benefits to wearing hearing aids. You may be shown different styles or have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.
Industrial hearing screenings
Workers in certain occupations are required to receive regular hearing tests due to the risk of hearing loss that can be caused by excessive noise in their workplace. These hearing screenings can be completed in less than 30 minutes, and comply with the standards set by OSHA.
Live Speech Mapping
Live Speech Mapping is a fitting process that uses probe microphones and live real-time speech to allow the patient and their family members to immediately see and understand the benefits of hearing aids and fitting adjustments.
