If you think you may have a hearing loss, we can help.
This is a quick and simple check that takes just 15-20 minutes to complete. Using a simple testing device called a hearing screener, it shows how well someone is hearing across four sound frequencies (from low to high pitched). The results of this simple test will indicate whether a more thorough hearing check is required. We carry out hearing screening for free – you can just pop in any branch that offers a hearing service and ask for a hearing screening or if you are an optical customer, it will form part of your eye test in the majority of our branches.
This is a more comprehensive assessment carried out by a Hearing Aid Audiologist. It takes about 45 minutes and during this appointment, your Audiologist will ask about your medical history, as well as your lifestyle and occupation and use a computerised audiometer to test your hearing.
After this test, if you would benefit from a hearing aid, the Audiologist will demonstrate the potential difference hearing aids could make. They will also explain the results of your check and advise you of the options available.
