Hearing Health FAQs
Tinnitus can be debilitating at times, affecting your sleep, concentration, and quality of life. Although there is no one cure for tinnitus, there are many management options that can help you experience relief from ringing in the ears. At our hearing clinic, we carry tinnitus masking hearing aids that can distract your brain from tinnitus.
We carry a large selection of hearing protection that can be custom fit to your unique ear shape. This includes musician earplugs and in-ear monitors. With these, you can protect your hearing from loud live music, while still hearing the music itself. If you are a musician or enjoy listening to live music, custom earplugs are a must for you.
Dizziness, ear ringing, and other balance disorders can be connected to hearing loss. Our sense of balance comes from within the cochlea, which is where the hearing nerve is located. If you have hearing loss due to a head or ear injury, then your balance may be affected as well. Balance, hearing loss, and other hearing disorders can sometimes be connected. It’s important to have your hearing tested so we can diagnose the root cause of your condition.
A tinnitus test is performed as a hearing exam. During your hearing exam we will ask you a series of questions to better understand how you hear tinnitus, when it affects you, and how bothersome it is. Then we will perform a hearing test which will allows us to develop a full picture of your ear and hearing health.
