The ability to hear often declines as a person gets older. An audiologist can help determine if an older adult might benefit from a hearing aid to help with conversation and sounds. Doral audiologists diagnose and treat these conditions and others affecting hearing and balance:
- Age-related hearing loss
- Balance problems
- Dizziness (vertigo)
- Hearing loss from being exposed to loud music or machinery
- Hearing loss related to migraine headaches
- Problems hearing words and sounds
- Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
What to expect when you see an audiologist
The audiologist will conduct one or more hearing tests to determine how much hearing you have lost, which parts of your ear are affected, whether your brain is the cause and what type of therapy or hearing aid would work best. Hearing tests evaluate how well adults and children hear different types of sounds, such as:
- Movement of the eardrum
- Quiet, normal and loud sounds
After reviewing the hearing test results with you, the audiologist will discuss treatment options and will review ways you can protect your hearing in the future.
