Using a otoscope to guide us, cerumen is extracted using a forcep lighted loop, curette, suction or gentle flushing to grasp and pull moist cerumen out of the ear canal. If the cerumen appears hard and dry, a three-day course of a carbamide peroxide cerumenolytic is recommended to soften the cerumen before removing. For any wax buildup that cannot be easily removed by the audiologist due to other medical contraindications, you will be referred to your medical doctor for further treatment.
Complete hearing testing for ages four to adult provided by a Doctor of Audiology.
Evaluations include measures of hearing sensitivity for air and bone conducted sounds, measures of speech discrimination ability and, when necessary, assessment of the middle ear function (impedance audiometry), and special testing to determine the location of dysfunction.
With our real ear measurement system, we can now measure and record the actual performance of your hearing aids while they are in your ears. This computer analysis helps us to verify that your hearing aid prescription is precisely matched to your individual requirements.
