Hearing Diagnostic Testing & Hearing Aids
Dr. Alexandria Lee, CCC-A, Doctor of Audiology
An audiogram is a hearing test which will precisely determine your pattern and degree of hearing loss. It will also help clarify how to program a hearing aid if needed.
There are multiple parts of a hearing test. First, tones will by played similar to piano notes from a keyboard, from low to high pitch. Next, a bone oscillator will be placed against the bone behind the ear and this tests hearing of tones that travel through the bone directly to the cochlea. This will tell us if your hearing loss is related to nerve loss (sensorineural hearing loss), or if it is related to poor conduction of sound through the eardrum and middle ear (conductive hearing loss). We may then test understanding of words and sentences through headphones and a tympanogram will check the health of the eardrum and middle ear pressure.
Dr. Lee believes that hearing aids should not only fit your pattern and degree of hearing loss but also your lifestyle.
Dr. Lee will take great care to adjust how your hearing aids feel, how they function, and how they sound. While many big box retailers are most interested in cutting costs and associated services, we know that the quality, professional service can directly impact the effectiveness of your hearing aids. Most of our patients are successful hearing aid users, telling us the hearing aids are comfortable and beneficial to their hearing after two weeks of wear. On the other hand, many patients without the support of skilled provider are left with devices they may never use due to low effectiveness. Our job is to maximize the function of your hearing aids and minimize any discomfort or hassle with wearing them.

Earlens uses a small lens placed directly on the eardrum to stimulate hearing through vibration and activation of the normal ear sound conduction processes.
