Digital Hearing Aids

 

Hearing aids are probably the most well-known treatment for hearing loss. They are usually recommended for people with a sensori-neural hearing loss or for hearing loss that cannot be treated surgically.

Ear Wax Removal Service

Earwax is one of the more common causes of hearing loss and tinnitus, alongside age. Symptoms include reduced hearing and a feeling of being blocked up. Fortunately, it’s also one of the easiest to treat.

Noise Protection & Ear Plugs

Noise is one of the leading causes of hearing loss and is totally preventable. If you work with noisy machinery or sleep near someone who snores, speak to us about our custom made noise protection.

Auditory Processing Assessments

Passed your hearing test, but still feel there is a hearing problem? For children and adults with an Auditory processing difficulty this is often the case. Auditory processing is what the brain does with what we hear.
