Think you may have hearing loss? The experts at Midwest Hearing are here to help. Start your journey toward better hearing by taking our quick and easy free online hearing screener.*
Hearing Loss Screening
An online hearing screener measures how well you can hear different sounds and helps determine if you may have hearing loss in as little as five minutes. After reviewing your demographic information, the screener asks you questions about how you perceive your hearing in different environments and conditions.
Next is the hearing check portion of the exam. Headphones are required and we recommend completing the screener in a quiet location. A variety of tones will play through the headphones while you answer queries about each sound. The screener is then repeated in your other ear.
The results of your free hearing screener are separated out by ear and indicate where your hearing ability falls on a spectrum from significant loss to good hearing. This information can be used by your audiologist to order a comprehensive set of hearing tests. Once your exact type, degree and configuration of hearing loss has been determined, a treatment plan can be customized to fit your individual needs.
Benefits of Hearing Aids
Hearing aids are the most widely prescribed treatment plan for hearing loss, and for good reason. Compared to individuals who choose to live with untreated hearing loss, those who treat their loss with hearing aids report better:
- Overall health
- Professional success
- Emotional wellbeing
- Self confidence
- Cognitive health
What do I do with my online hearing screener results?
An online hearing screener can indicate if you may have hearing loss through a series of self-reported questions. The results should be used to prompt you to visit an audiology office, where a diagnostic hearing evaluation will be performed. These tests are used to determine your specific type and degree of hearing loss.
Your audiologist then uses the results to create a customized hearing treatment plan.
