Hearing Test near San Carlos

If you are seeking a hearing test near San Carlos, consider Peninsula Hearing Services in Burlingame.  Owned and operated by a California licensed Doctor of Audiology, a comprehensive hearing test is an important part of managing good health.  Most hearing loss occurs so gradually an individual is not aware of it until it has progressed to a more advanced stage.  If hearing loss is ignored and untreated, it can get worse.

If hearing loss is suspected, the only way to know for sure is to have a hearing test performed.  Hearing evaluations, often referred to as a hearing test, are performed by audiologists or other licensed hearing healthcare providers.

How is a Hearing Test Performed ? 

A hearing test is very similar in nature to what a vision test is to the eyes.   Like a vision test that measures how well one can see various sized letters on a chart, a hearing test measures how well one can “hear” different tones/pitches and understand speech.  The test is quick, painless and non-invasive and the results will be available immediately.

The hearing professional will perform the following:

  • Case History: patient interview regarding ear and hearing history/concerns.
  • Otoscopy: examination of the ear canals with a type of ear magnifier named an   This is performed to determine health of the eardrum and ear canal itself and if there is any blockage of the ear canal.
  • Hearing Test: different pitched tones are presented to one ear at a time using headphones.  The purpose of the test is to measure how softly one can detect each of the different tones measured against a baseline of normal hearing.  The ability to understand speech is then measured for each ear.  The responses are recorded on a graph called an audiogram.
  • Other Tests:Other tests include how well your middle ear, the space between the ear drum and hearing nerve, is functioning.  Middle ear testing is performed using a special headphone named a bone oscillator.  If middle ear dysfunction is suspected,  a second test named tympanometry may be administered which measures air pressure behind the ear drum and how well the ear drum moves.

 

Similar to vision/eyesight well exams, hearing should be evaluated every 3-5 years; sooner if a change in hearing is noticed.  If you suspect hearing loss, it is important you seek a thorough hearing evaluation as soon as possible. Conveniently located off Peninsula Ave and Hwy 101, Peninsula Hearing Services provides professional services for a hearing test near San Carlos.

ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT POSSIBLE HEARING LOSS?

If you’ve noticed that your hearing has changed, then you should have a hearing evaluation.
It’s fast, easy and very reasonable.

Unlike eye exams, there is no standard for periodic exams.

Instead, people have their hearing checked when they become aware that they’re unable to hear as well as before.
