Step 1: Your hearing healthcare professional will review your medical history and ask questions to understand possible causes of your hearing difficulties.
Step 2: Causes such as excess earwax will be determined through an otoscopic exam. If these causes are ruled out, more comprehensive hearing tests will be performed to get precise information about the type and extent of your hearing loss.
Step 3: If hearing aids are the recommended solution, your professional will talk to you about your lifestyle and budget in order to help you choose the best devices for your needs. Be sure to ask your professional about a hearing aid trial so you can try before you buy!
