How Does a Hearing Test Work?

A hearing test, also known as audiometry evaluation, is a painless and non-invasive type of test. It is performed in order to measure various functions of a person’s hearing system, such as ability to identify sounds, pitches, and frequencies. There are various factors that could impede a person’s ability to hear these types of sounds so a hearing test can assess the problem. This test is also performed before and after a surgery to determine if hearing loss is restored, and to what extent.

A hearing test will target the three distinct parts of the ear: outer, middle, and inner ear. Through this test, you will be able to identify any hearing problem such as sensorineural hearing loss (caused by damage to the cochlea) and conductive hearing loss (damage to the eardrums). There are a variety of tests that can be performed based on symptoms and initial diagnosis.

The test can be done in as short as 30 minutes. But it will depend on your symptoms and type of hearing loss problem (as there might be more tests recommended).
