Hearing Exam near Belmont

If you are seeking a hearing exam near Belmont, consider Peninsula Hearing Services in Burlingame.  A comprehensive hearing exam 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 exam performed.  Hearing evaluations, often referred to as a hearing exam, are performed by audiologists or other licensed hearing healthcare providers.

How is a Hearing Exam Performed ? 

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

The hearing professional will perform the following:

  • Case History: to understand your ear and hearing history.
  • Otoscopy: examination of the ear canals with a type of magnifier named an   This is done to determine if there is any blockage of the ear canal and the health of the eardrum and ear canal itself.
  • Hearing Exam: 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 Exams: Other exams include how well you can understand speech and 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.

Similar to routine vision/eyesight 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 exam near Belmont.
