Hearing Tests in Bury
with Better Hearing Clinic at JH Fisher Opticians, Bury
Better Hearing Clinic are one of the leading providers of hearing tests in the North West. Our base on the north side of Bury is at JH Fisher Opticians on Market Street in Tottington, where appointments can be scheduled for Mondays and Tuesdays.
Up to one-in-six adults in the UK experiencing some form of hearing loss, but is a largely invisible issue which many people don’t realise can be very easy to diagnose and treat. If you have trouble fully catching conversations, or have to turn your TV up louder than you used to, one of our hearing assessments may be able to pinpoint the problem and offer up a simple solution.
What Happens at a Hearing Test?
Our hearing consultations are safe, entirely painless and help to paint a picture of the frequencies your ears can pick up.
Using an audiometer, we send a series of beeps and tones into a set of noise-cancelling headphones, where we can effectively measure the range of sound waves you are converting into something audible.
To help us further understand the overall condition of your ears, we use a microscopic camera called an otoscope to examine your ear canal and any potential blockages leading to your eardrums. Any issues with ear wax will become obvious at this stage.
Will I Need Hearing Aids?
Not all loss of hearing problems are down to a build up of ear wax. If you have an underlying issue, it may be that a hearing aid is the most sensible course of treatment.
Hearing aids have developed tremendously over the past couple of decades, and those clunky old NHS ones have thankfully been consigned to the past. As a completely independent company, we are free to offer impartial, no obligation advice on the benefits and most suitable digital hearing aid to transform your quality of life.
These range from discreet devices which hide behind your ear, to cutting edge in-ear receivers which are practically invisible. Whichever hearing aid model you choose, we will give you a full detailed demonstration of how it works, fit it for you, and always be on hand for any aftercare.
As well as providing hearing health checks and digital hearing aids, we offer a wide spectrum of audiology services.
Ear Wax Removal
A common cause of hearing loss is the build up of ear wax. This is a combination of serum (the wax) and skin debris that block sound waves from making their way efficiently to the eardrum.
Comprehensive Hearing Tests
If your initial exploratory test has unearthed any issues, a more in-depth audiogram consultation can precisely pinpoint the range of frequencies you are able to hear and enable us to make a more accurate suggestion on the best course of treatment.
Tinnitus can be a debilitating condition, and while there is currently no cure for it, there are techniques which can help ease the symptoms. Your first tinnitus management session is completely free, and we have received full training from the British Tinnitus Association.
Perfect for musicians and workers in loud environments, we have a superb range of devices to help protect your hearing from excessive noise.
Our hearing health checks are available by appointment on Mondays and Tuesdays at JH Fisher Opticians, 21 Market Street, Tottington, Bury, BL8 4AA. If you have mobility issues, we can even visit you and conduct a full hearing test from the comfort of your own home.
