When should I see an Audiologist?
You don't need to be referred by an ENT or a doctor to see an Audiologist or to have a hearing test. If you think your are suffering from hearing loss give Ozen a call and one our consultants can setup an appointment for you with one of our verified, local partners.

So what can you expect at your appointment?
Firstly, you'll be asked questions about your history and past experience with hearing loss. Our partners will then likely examine your ears, and then depending on your symptoms provide either a screening test of a few different types of tests to determine the extent of the hearing loss. At all stages the local partner you visit should keep you informed about the procedure and answer any questions you may have.
What Experience Do Audiologists Have?
All Audiologists in Australia have up to 5 years university experience including 2 years of a Master’s degree so they are well equipped to assist you. If you are suffering from symptoms such as dizziness or vertigo please let your Audiologist know so that they can do specific tests for those symptoms. They may refer you on for further testing to properly diagnose your condition.
Will an Audiologist find me the best hearing aid?
After conducting a thorough test and evaluating which situations you are having difficulty hearing your Audiologist can start to recommend styles and brands of hearing aids. Everyone's ear is unique and reacts differently to a hearing aid so only after trialling and testing different types will you be able to determine the best hearing aid for you. There is a very large price difference between hearing aid models so your audiologist will work within your budget to find the best hearing aid. Most hearing professionals will provide at a minimum a 30 day trial period so should you not be happy you can take it back within that period for a refund or to try a different one.
What Type of Hearing Tests Can Be Performed?
Pure Tone - This is to determine which frequencies each ear can hear.
Speech - To determine which volume you have trouble hearing speech.
Middle Ear - Various tests to determine how your middle ear is functioning.
Inner Ear - Testing to determine information about the cochlear inner ear functions and brain pathways for hearing.
Can my Audiologist remove wax from my ears?
Sure, if you suffer from excess wax build up in your ear then your local partner can remove the wax. Depending on the level and hardness of the wax they may use Syringing which injects water in the ear to remove the wax, suctioning which is a small vacuum or a tool to scoop the wax out of your ears. After an in person examination your audiologist will be able to determine the best method for your needs.
What are custom ear molds?
Your hearing professional may be able to take an impression of your ear which is used to make custom ear molds. They inject a special material into your outer ear which hardens into a custom mold of your ear. These impressions can be used to make custom ear plugs or in ear monitors for musicians and professionals in the Audio industry. They are also commonly used to make custom earplugs for swimmers who are prone to infection due to water entering the ear.
