Hearing loss and difficulty hearing is very common. It can be a distressing experience to any individual, especially if it deteriorates over time and affects both ears. Losing the ability to hear is natural as one gets older, but there are numerous types of hearing problems that are not related to age. Struggling to hear makes it difficult to follow conversations or function normally, which often leads to a patient feeling isolated and depressed. To help patients struggling with any type of hearing impairment, audiologists can conduct a series of tests in order to establish the cause of the problem.
A hearing impairment is usually the result of inner ear or nerve damage which can be the caused by a hereditary defect, an injury, a disease, a reaction to certain medications, old-age, or excessive exposure to loud noises. At Dr Tanja Beeton Audiologist, we specialise in providing clients with a diagnosis and a suitable solution to either treat their hearing problems, or to live a normal life despite a hearing disorder.
Some common hearing impairments include:
• Sudden hearing loss (that can be the cause of several reasons)
• Auditory processing disorders
• Congenital deafness
• Ototoxicity from eardrops (or damage caused by the intake of other medications)
If you are suffering from sudden loss of hearing, or you are struggling to hear with one of your ears, or you hear a constant buzzing or ringing in your ears, you may be suffering from a serious hearing impairment and it is highly recommended that you speak to a hearing professional such as Dr Tanja Beeton.
During your consultation, we will perform tests to establish the reason for your hearing impairment. We will also examine the inside of your ears to check for the presence of earwax, and other obvious issues affecting your eardrum. If we find that a hearing aid will assist you in functioning with your hearing disorderimpairment, we can also guide you in choosing the appropriate device for your problem.
