Comprehensive services centered around your hearing health.
We offer comprehensive hearing tests in Altamonte Springs for adults of all ages. A hearing test is the first step in identifying hearing loss and diagnosing the degree. We will perform a comprehensive hearing exam to determine how well you can hear different sounds at various frequencies as well as your ability to understand speech in noise and in quiet.
The results of your hearing test will be recorded on an audiogram. This will show us what degree of loss you have (mild, moderate, moderately severe, severe or profound).
Hearing Aid Fittings
Once we have the results of your hearing test then we will recommend a pair of hearing aids that match your unique needs. We will then fit those hearing aids to sit comfortably and securely in or around your ear. Using your hearing prescription, we will program your new devices to provide you with the proper amount of amplification to hear in your different environments.
Real Ear Measurement
Real ear measurement is one of the most important processes needed to ensure your hearing aids are programmed optimally for you. This measures sound pressure levels in your ear canal that are developed when wearing a hearing aid. Our hearing specialist uses real ear measurement to ensure your hearing aids are providing you with the proper amplification to hear in different environments.
Hearing Aid Repairs
Similar to any technology, sometimes your hearing aids will require repairs or maintenance. Our hearing specialist is an expert in hearing aid technology and can fix almost any issue. If something isn’t working right with your hearing aids, bring them into our office. We offer a variety of hearing aid repair services, including:
- Repairing the battery doors
- Replacing receiver (speaker) wires
- Dehumidifying the hearing aid
- Replacing the earmold tubing
- Replacing domes and filter system
If there is more serious damage to your hearing aids, we can send them to the manufacturer for you to be repaired.
Hearing Aid Cleaning
To keep your hearing aids performing their best, you should bring them in for regular cleaning and maintenance appointments. We can perform deep cleanings on hearing aids to ensure they are working correctly. It is recommended that you bring your hearing aids in every six months for a professional cleaning.
Tinnitus, commonly known as “ringing in the ears,” affects millions of people. Tinnitus is when you hear a buzzing, humming, ringing, or whooshing sound in your head or ears when no external sounds are present.
If you have hearing loss and experience ringing in the ears, we have a tinnitus treatment that can help you. We carry tinnitus masking hearing aids which will play soothing sounds in your ears to distract your brain from the symptoms of tinnitus. Although hearing aids won’t stop ringing in the ears completely, they can greatly help you experience relief.
Loud noise exposure is one of the most common causes of hearing loss in people of all ages. Regular exposure to sounds above 85 decibels can be detrimental to hearing. Whether you enjoy listening to live music, hunting, partaking in motorsports, you use power tools, or you are a musician, it’s important to wear hearing protection.
At our family hearing center, we can create custom fit earmolds, earplugs, and in-ear monitors to keep your ears safe from loud sounds.
Assistive Listening Devices
Sometimes hearing aids aren’t enough. Assistive listening devices (ALDs) are designed to give extra clarity and amplification in difficult listening environments, such as a restaurant, conference room, or lecture hall. At Altamonte Family Hearing, we carry different types of assistive listening devices, including captioned telephones, to make hearing easier than ever.
