Compassionate Hearing Loss Treatment in Gahanna, OH
The experts at Absolute Hearing Solutions want to help you hear clearly. We can diagnose your level of hearing loss and then develop a treatment plan to help improve your quality of life.
Determining Your Type of Hearing Loss
People can experience impaired hearing at any age, although it's more common for seniors. Hearing loss is organized into four categories:
- Auditory Processing Disorders: In these cases, the brain can't fully process sounds that are heard.
- Conductive Hearing Loss: Problems in the outer or inner ear block sounds from passing into the inner ear.
- Sensorineural Hearing Loss: Electrical signals aren't sent to the brain correctly due to issues in the cochlea, auditory nerve, or other parts of the ear.
- Mixed Hearing Loss: This is a combination of conductive and sensorineural types of auditory impairment.
Proper treatment relies on a correct diagnosis. At Absolute Hearing Solutions, our state-of-the-art diagnostic tools and techniques, combined with our personalized approach, lead to customized solutions for our patients.
Developing a Hearing Loss Treatment Plan
Our advanced testing helps us determine the right approach to treating your specific type and extent of hearing loss. After conducting thorough testing, we review options with you and make recommendations. During your hearing test, we use speech perception, pure tone audiometry, tympanometry, live speech mapping, tuning fork tests, the whispered voice test, and the bone conduction test to determine your level of hearing. We also use a video otoscope for a complete analysis of the state of your ear canals.
Should you need hearing aids, we will use a state-of-the-art prescription analyzer to accurately assess what device is right for you. We carry a large selection of models, brands, and styles, including behind-the-ear, digital, analog, in-the-ear, and in-canal. We also carry related supplies including filters, batteries, and protectors.
