Hearing Check Henley on Thames

You may not think you have wax but know there is something going on with your ears! If this is the case contact the practice for an hearing check Henley on Thames

Following an initial discussion regarding your health and hearing, we begin by examining your ears using a fibre optic camera. The camera sits just at the entrance of the ear, and enables both you and the audiologist to view your ear canal and ear drum on a large screen. If wax is present, this will removed.

If there is no wax or debris present in the canal, there may be other tell-tale signs of what the problem is. We will perform a Tympanogram, which measures whether the mechanical function of the ear drum and middle ear cavity are working normally. This also highlights if you are suffering from any form of Eustachian tube dysfunction which is common. These results usually dictate the best next step.

If you have any referable symptoms or require antibiotic treatment, we will write to your GP with the outcome of your appointment.

Why hearing check-ups are important

Taking care of your ears is important, as research shows that untreated hearing loss is directly linked to an increased likelihood of developing dementia, as well as a wide range of physical problems. For older people in particular, other issues can include feelings of isolation, loss of independence and reduced quality of life.

Did you know that around 1 in 6 people in the UK have some degree of hearing loss, most of whom are aged 60 or over? But despite 6.7 million people potentially benefiting from using hearing aids, only 2 million do so at present*.
