HEARING ASSESSMENT FAQ’s

WHEN SHOULD I HAVE A HEARING ASSESSMENT?

Regular eye examinations are often accepted as the norm. Your hearing should be given the same level of care as part of managing your general health and wellbeing.

This is particularly relevant as we age due to the gradual deterioration of our hearing, however people can be affected by a loss of hearing at any stage in their life.

We therefore encourage everyone to consider having regular ear health checks and hearing assessments.

HOW MUCH DOES A HEARING ASSESSMENT COST?

At Sheinman we believe that along with your vision, your hearing is one of the most important senses we have for connecting us with others and to the outside world.

The fee for a hearing assessment is £33.00, which is the same as for our eye examinations.

We are committed to providing you with the same high standard of care for your hearing that our patients expect from us for their eyes.

Should you go on to purchase hearing aids from us, the fee for assessment will be included as part of your hearing care package.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE HEARING ASSESSMENT?

At the beginning of the appointment your Audiologist will complete a short medical history with you relating to ear and hearing health.

A detailed examination of the health of your outer ear is carried out first using a video otoscope, followed by a check of your middle ear function. Your Audiologist will then perform audiometric testing to determine your level of hearing.

At the end of the assessment your Audiologist will discuss your results and also provide any advice or recommendations, such as onward referral or suitable hearing technology.

Your Audiologist will also be very happy to answer any questions you may have.

HOW LONG DOES THE HEARING ASSESSMENT TAKE?

A hearing assessment with your Audiologist will last approximately one hour.

Parking is available close to our practice on Abington Street and also nearby in St Michael’s multi-storey car park. For more information please click here.

WHAT IF I NEED HEARING AIDS?

This choice will be guided by the nature and level of your hearing loss, as well as your lifestyle and personal requirements.

Adopting a hearing solution can often be a journey that involves acclimatisation over a few weeks or even months.

A thorough consultation and ongoing support with your Audiologist will help to guide you through this decision and process.

HOW MUCH DO HEARING AIDS COST?

The hearing aids we offer are available in a range of styles and prices, and all come with inclusive service for ongoing support.

We can also offer an interest free payment option and 60-day return period on all of our hearing care packages.

Your Audiologist will be able to guide you on the options available and help customise a hearing solution that is matched to your specific needs.
