Audiology–are you familiar with the term? By looking through our website, you can probably come to the conclusion that it is the study of hearing and hearing loss. But that’s just scraping the surface; there are many other aspects that come with audiology that you should be aware of. Audiologists are highly trained and skilled in this area, and are able to get you the help you need professionally and efficiently. But what exactly do audiologists do? Read on for all the details.
What is an Audiologist?
Audiologists treat people of all ages with issues regarding their hearing and hearing loss. General practitioners are able to inspect your ears, but they don’t have the equipment or specific training that is needed to fully evaluate hearing loss. An audiologist conducts many tests and evaluations in order to find the exact cause and type of hearing loss. Audiologists can also distribute hearing aids, and can recommend physicians when they feel surgical or medical attention is necessary.
Why Should I See an Audiologist?
Hearing loss is gradual and happens as we age, so not many people even realize that they have a hearing problem. But we treat all ages–that’s because hearing loss can happen at any age, at any time, and for a variety of reasons. There is no one cause for hearing loss, and a hearing evaluation is the best way to determine what exactly caused the problem, and how to fix it. An audiologist is the best person to see when you have any issues regarding hearing loss; you’ll need their specialized training to ensure that your ears are properly cared for. Audiologists can also work with you to find the best solution for your hearing loss, and will help you with the search for the perfect hearing aid. Regular evaluations with an audiologists is the best way to stay on top of your hearing.
