- Fit hearing aids properly – Your audiologist will give advice in choosing and fitting the right hearing aid so that you can hear properly. Depending on the hearing test results, an audiologist will plan and fit a hearing aid which is most appropriate for you. Hence, the hearing aid needs to be programmed in a way so that it matches with your loss of hearing. After this, follow up appointments need to be scheduled in order to ensure the hearing aid fit and sound comfortable so you can hear at your best!
- Hearing tests – An audiologist will perform a necessary hearing test. This audiogram is a graphic representation of the results obtained while performing a hearing test. Each ear is presented with different tones and there will be a mark placed on the audiogram during the hearing test where the sound becomes audible, which is known as the threshold. The audiologist will review your hearing test with you so you have a better understanding of your hearing.
