Do you suspect you have a hearing loss? How can you be sure? Hearing loss can affect anyone and often progresses so gradually, it can be difficult to notice until you experience symptoms.

How Are Hearing Tests Conducted?
When you visit Monument Occupational Medical Clinic , our first step will be to get to know your personal hearing health and medical history and find out what concerns you have. There are many potential causes of hearing loss, so the history helps determine if you could have anything inherited or genetic in your family.
Hearing tests are painless and non-invasive. Most occur in a quiet, sound-treated room (booth) or enclosure designed to keep out any other noises which might affect your hearing exam scores, such as the heater, air conditioner or office environment. You will be asked to wear headphones or soft earplugs with wires connected to an instrument called an audiometer that is used to conduct the test.
