Wyndham, WA Australia (PressExposure) September 08, 2011 -- Hearing Technology, which specializes in hearing aids Auckland, just announced that it is offering patients a free hearing test to check for any hearing difficulties that may need to be addressed. The hearing test includes an otoscopic examination and pure tone air conduction test.
Anyone can be at risk for hearing loss so this simple hearing test can alert patients to problems early on. Any impairment found can be quickly addressed at any of Hearing Technology's clinics throughout Christchurch, Auckland and Canterbury. Hearing Technology offers a complete range of services and products to assist with hearing loss, noise management, hearing aids or hearing protection.
John Robertson founder of Hearing Technology said people don't always recognize the symptoms of hearing loss right away or may think they haven't suffered hearing loss because they don't require hearing aids.
"Often people will start turning the TV or radio up louder, ask people to repeat themselves or have problems hearing clearly on the telephone. They start to adjust but what they don't realize is they are missing out on a lot of softer sounds in life," John Robertson said.
Hearing impairment often goes unnoticed because it's a gradual process. Hearing can be affected by sustained exposure to high decibel noise. Damaging decibel levels don't always come from rock concerts, however. Everyday noise like noise from the street, cars or even household appliances can potentially cause impairment over time. If impairment is severe enough hearing aids can help.
And because sometimes occupational noise is the culprit in hearing impairment Hearing Technology offers services to assess noise in occupational and industrial settings including noise level measurement, DOL compliance assessment, individual hearing protection and noise management.
Whether it's a simple evaluation that's needed, education on protecting hearing from damage or hearing aids Auckland, Hearing Technology can help correct any impairment and improve hearing ability. It all starts with a simple hearing test.
