Hearing Aid Evaluation and Selection

During a hearing aid evaluation, you will meet with a licensed professional who will discuss with you the different styles, colors, technologies, and benefits to wearing hearing aids. You may be shown different styles or have the opportunity to try different hearing aids in the office. Custom impressions may be taken of your ears, depending on the style of hearing aid chosen.

Musician's Ear Plugs and Monitors: Evaluation and Fitting

Musicians practice and perform in a variety of different settings. They are exposed to high levels of sound, sometimes for long periods, which may put them at risk for permanent hearing damage. Musician’s ear plugs are custom-made devices that help to limit the sound exposure from instruments, while still providing a rich musical experience for the performer or audience.

Tympanometry

Tympanometry is an examination used to test the condition of the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and the conduction bones by creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal. Tympanometry is an objective test of middle-ear function.  Your audiologist has the training to interpret these results to help with the diagnosis of middle ear problems.

Video Otoscopy

Video otoscopy allows us to clearly visualize a patient’s ear canal and tympanic membrane (ear drum) by projecting an image onto a computer monitor. At Longhorn Hearing, we use video otoscopy at the start of every hearing test. Video otoscopy allows the audiologist to identify conditions of the outer ear, ear canal and tympanic membrane that can affect hearing and the testing process, including tympanic membrane perforations and earwax build up.
