Services for better hearing and overall health.
Hearing Tests in Melbourne, FL
A hearing test is the first step in determining if you have a hearing loss, how severe it is, and the specifics. At our hearing center, we provide diagnostic hearing tests to adults of all ages. Our hearing specialist will assess your hearing and help you determine if you could be helped by a hearing aid. During your hearing exam, we will perform a series of tests, including:
Pure tone testing
Speech testing in quiet and noise
Although earwax is a normal part of having healthy ears, sometimes it can become impacted. Impacted earwax can cause clogged ears, discomfort, and at times, muffled hearing. Our hearing specialist can safely and effectively remove impacted earwax, so you can hear clearly again.
Hearing Aid Evaluations
After we’ve evaluated your hearing, we will take the results of your audiogram and determine what kind of hearing aid will best help you. We will ask you some questions to better understand your lifestyle, activity level, and what your hearing goals are. With this information, we will select a hearing aid that will help you hear better.
Hearing Aid Fittings
After you’ve chosen a hearing aid, we will expertly fit the device to your unique ear shape and program them to your specific hearing prescription. Because we are able to work with the major hearing aid brands, we can program any hearing aid.
Hearing Aid Cleanings
Because your hearing aids sit in your ears all day every day, it’s important to clean them regularly. In addition, you should also bring them in to our office every six months for a professional, deep cleaning. We can remove dust, dead skin cells, and earwax that has built-up in the small components of your devices.
Hearing Aid Repair Services
If something isn’t working quite right with your hearing aids, we can make some repairs in-office. Our hearing specialist is an expert in hearing aid technology and can troubleshoot most problems. Whether you need a dome replaced or your hearing aid is producing a squealing sound, we can help.
Loud noise exposure is one of the most common causes of hearing loss. Any time noise levels exceed 85 decibels, you should wear hearing protection, such as earplugs. We can create custom fit hearing protection including earplugs, earmolds, swim plugs, and in-ear monitors for musicians. It’s important to keep your ears safe in order to preserve your hearing ability.
Ringing in the ears, medically known as tinnitus, is a common condition that affects millions of people. At Heart of Hearing Ear Clinic, we can perform a tinnitus test during your hearing evaluation to help you determine the cause and severity of your tinnitus. We also offer a tinnitus treatment that can alleviate the phantom sounds of tinnitus. We carry special tinnitus masking hearing aids that can distract your brain from the buzzing, humming, ringing, or whistling sounds.
Living with tinnitus can be highly disruptive to your daily life. If you want to stop ringing in the ears, contact us today.
