When Was The Last Time That You Had Your Hearing Tested?

One of our biggest frustrations as doctors of audiology is we all regularly have our teeth checked by our dentist, our blood pressure tested by our physician and our eyes tested by our optometrist – yet rarely do any of us have our hearing regularly tested.

But with hearing loss affecting 1 in 8 Americans, it should be a staple part of your health checks.

Unfortunately, many of us decide to have our hearing tested when it’s too late, which means we spend a lot of our time caring for patients with  substantial  hearing loss, whereas if they visited us upon their first signs of hearing loss, we could have helped them to prolong their hearing for many years.

At Holland Hearing, we have a duty to care for the hearing health of the great people of Abilene by educating and supporting them to regularly have their hearing tested.

If you believe you’re experiencing the initial signs of hearing loss or you believe a friend or loved one may be struggling, then we highly encourage you to schedule a comprehensive hearing assessment.

What do we test at your hearing assessment?

Holland Hearing Center provides comprehensive hearing test and tinnitus (ringing-in-the ear) evaluations. We offer individual solutions considering both lifestyle as well as budget to treat tinnitus and hearing loss.

  • Otoscopy

    Otoscopy is an examination that involves looking into the ear with an otoscope. This is performed in order to examine the external auditory canal, the tunnel that leads from the outer ear (pinna) to the eardrum.
  • Cerumen Removal

    Cerumen, also known as earwax, is naturally produced by the glands in the ears to lubricate the ear canals and keep dust and debris from getting too far down in the ear canal. Our Doctors are skilled at removing ear wax in the office.
  • Tympanometry

    Tympanometry is an examination used to test the condition of the middle ear and mobility of the eardrum (tympanic membrane) and the conduction bones by creating variations of air pressure in the ear canal. Tympanometry is an objective test of middle-ear function.
  • Pure tone Air/Bone Conduction

    Patient is placed in the sound booth wearing insert earphones and different tones are presented. The patient responds when he/she can hear the tone by pressing a patient response button.
  • Word Recognition Testing

    Words are presented through the insert headphones in the soundbooth and patient repeats them back to the audiologist.
  • Speech in Noise Measurements

    Patient repeats sentences (with competing noise) back to the audiologist. During each sentence the competing noise gets louder to assess how well the patient can hear in a real world environment.

The combination of these tests help the audiologist to determine the nature and degree of the patient’s hearing loss. This gives the Doctor valuable tools in offering the most appropriate solution for the patient’s hearing loss.

Great service!

Had gotten hearing aids from another facility in town, never heard another word from them. Holland called several times to make sure everything was ok.

Great attention paid to my needs and the details of programming the aids.
