Hearing Tests in Granger, IN

A hearing test is the first step in identifying hearing loss. Hearing impairments are diagnosed in degrees (mild, moderate, moderately severe, severe or profound), so it is important to understand which degree of loss you have so it can be properly managed.

A hearing test is a simple and quick assessment. The purpose of a hearing test is to assess how well you can hear certain frequencies as well as sound in competing noise. Our team will perform a series of tests, including the following:

Hearing Aid Fitting

After you’ve had your hearing examined and you’ve chosen a pair of hearing aids, you will need to have them fit and programmed. Our hearing specialists will expertly fit the hearing aids to your unique ear shape so they fit securely yet comfortably in/around your ear.

After your devices have been fit, then they will need to be programmed to your exact hearing needs. Using the results of your audiogram, we will fine-tune your hearing aids to provide you with the optimal amount of amplification and clarity based on your individual listening environments. We may have you come in for a follow-up appointment so we can check in with your progress and see how your new devices are serving you.

Hearing Aid Repairs

Hearing aids experience every day wear and tear and may need to be repaired if an issue arises. Whether an adjustment needs to be made to the programming, your devices are providing you with feedback or whistling, or something else seems to be wrong with your hearing aids, our audiologists can help you.

Many hearing aid repairs can be solved quickly in the office. If your hearing aids have suffered more severe damage then we can send them to the manufacturer for you.

Hearing Aid Cleanings

Just like any wearable device, you should do your best to clean your hearing aids on a daily basis. Every time you take them out of your ears, you should wipe your hearing aids with a dry, soft cloth to remove any earwax or other debris. This will ensure the longevity of your devices and that they continue to perform their best.

In addition to cleaning your hearing aids at home, we also recommend bringing them in every six months for a deep, professional cleaning. If it has been some time since you last had your hearing aids cleaned or professionally serviced, contact our office for an appointment!

Hearing Protection

One of the most common causes of hearing loss (behind age) is loud noise exposure. Sounds over 85 decibels can cause irreversible damage to the hair cells in the inner ear, which are responsible for hearing. Any time you are around loud noise, it’s crucial to wear hearing protection.

At our hearing clinic, we can create custom fit earmolds and earplugs to protect your hearing from loud noise damage. Custom hearing protection is essential for musicians, live music goers, medical professionals, athletes, motorcyclists, construction workers, and anyone else who spends time where noise can become hazardous.

Don’t let loud noise exposure damage your hearing ability! Contact us today for an appointment.

Tinnitus Management

Have you ever heard a sound in your head that does not exist externally? You may have tinnitus, also known as “ringing in the ears.” Tinnitus is the perception of hearing a sound in your ears or head when no sound is actually present. These phantom sounds can include a buzzing, humming, ringing, roaring, whistling, or whooshing.

Tinnitus itself is not a disorder but rather a symptom of another underlying condition. While there is no cure, there are management options that can help alleviate your perception of ringing in the ears. At Dr. Campbell’s Hearing Solutions, we offer tinnitus treatment through hearing aids. We have tinnitus masking hearing aids that will play soothing sounds in your ears that distract your brain from tinnitus. While hearing aids won’t stop ringing in the ears completely, they can greatly help.
