Lake Shore Audiology offers a wide selection of hearing aids in a variety of styles and features. Our audiologists will work with you to determine the hearing aid that is right for your lifestyle and your budget. The process of selecting a hearing aid begins with a hearing evaluation and screening to determine the nature and level of your hearing loss and if a hearing aid is right for you.
Hearing loss or diminishing hearing can happen at any age. The best thing to do when you notice a change in your hearing is to contact your primary care doctor or contact Lake Shore Audiology. You will be examined by one of the Doctors of Audiology to fully assess your hearing and determine the cause and treatment.
Hearing & Balance Testing
If you are experiencing hearing loss or issues with your balance, you should schedule an evaluation with one of the audiologist at Lake Shore Audiology. Our experience staff and doctors of audiology can provide comprehensive hearing and balance testing.
Diagnostic Hearing Evaluations
During your examination you will be tested using a series of low & high frequency words to determine your ability to understand verbiage within a conversation. We will also give you several words to repeat. The results will help us determine your percentage of hearing loss, your ability to understand speech and how hearing aids will improve your ability to hear.
Otoacoustic emission testing allows the audiologist to understand how the outer hair cells of your inner ear are working.
Evaluations & Demonstration of ALD’s
Assistive listening devices are devices that can help a listener function better in day-to-day communication situations. ALDs can be used with or without hearing aids to make hearing easier, which can reduce the overall stress and fatigue of listening. ALDs can be used in the home to make alarms, the television and telephone more audible. They can also be connected to personal hearing aids for better listening in noisy environments.
Vestibular Balance Testing
Vestibular balance testing evaluates patients with imbalances or dizziness. These results are associated with the central and peripheral vestibular systems as well as other motor/balance areas of the body.
