What can our Audiologists do for you?
An Amplifon Audiologist is much more than just a hearing aid specialist although, typically, their primary job is to test hearing, and to prescribe and fit hearing aids.
- Your hearing test
During your hearing test, your Audiologist will ask you about your hearing problems and they will ask you to use a set of headphones to listen to a series of sounds at different pitches in each ear. All you need to do is press a button every time you hear a sound. After this simple test, you will undergo important tests of your understanding of speech both in quiet and in noisy conditions to simulate your real-world experience. Our hearing test is one of the most thorough in the industry.
Your Audiologist will then take you through the results of your hearing test and will discuss the types of hearing aids that are suitable for your needs and budget
Depending on the type of hearing aids you need, we may take a mould of your ear to ensure it fits correctly and performs as it needs to. Following the test, it can take approximately two weeks to prepare your hearing aids ready for fitting
- When it’s time to fit your hearing aids
When your hearing aids are ready, you will be asked to attend a fitting appointment with your dedicated hearing specialist. They will check that they fit properly and provide you with the right level of amplification and clear speech understanding. They will then show you how to fit, clean, store and use them, as well as answering any questions you may have.
- Support and aftercare
Your hearing changes throughout your life; regular appointments with your Audiologist are just as important as those with your optician or dentist. We provide a Lifetime Aftercare programme to ensure you always stay in touch with the world around you.
Aftercare may involve helping you plan and manage your hearing challenges through your devices. We are also on hand to provide help, advice or support whenever required.
