Hearing Tests And Ear Examinations.
A hearing test will take about 1 hour. We will start with collecting some history about you and your lifestyle to get a bigger picture of you and your needs and requirements. Next we will take pictures of your ear drums and explain what we see. We use video otoscopy so you will see exactly what I see! We will then perform audiometry and speech audiometry and explain the results to you in a simple and easy to understand way. We also do tympanometry that will show us if there is a problem with the middle ear. We also do extra testing where appropriate.
Micro - Suction and Irrigation Ear Wax Removal
For ear wax removal in Wigan, safety is paramount. Micro - suction is the preferred method of treatment for guaranteed effective removal of ear wax for some people, others may rather Irrigation, we will talk to you about the different methods, the benefits and suitability of both so we can make you feel comfortable every step of the way.
Both methods are usually totally comfortable and usually the blockage is removed in minutes. Sometimes we may use both methods to ensure all the wax is removed. Sometimes it may take more than one visit to remove all the wax, if this is the case then the second visit is totally free of charge.
I am a fully qualified Hearing Aid Audiologist with additional training in aural micro - suction ear wax removal by the EarWaxClinic (the Hearing Lab) and additional Irrigation training. I am also registered with the HCPC, BSHAA and fully insured.
Out Of Warranty Hearing Aid Repairs
All the hearing aids I sell will come with a 5 year warranty as a minimum. If you didn't purchase your hearing aid from us, we can still arrange for it to be repaired at a low cost for you. I aim to do most repairs in house. I will also teach you about hearing aids and how to maintain them to get the most out of them.
