At Belper Opticians we offer comprehensive hearing care services. These include free hearing health checks, full hearing assessments, ear wax removal and tinnitus management. As is the case with all of our services at Belper Opticians, our audiology services are delivered by a fully trained professional, in this case our independent resident audiologist (and wife of Ryan, our director/optometrist), Raj Khaira. So all patients can expect a friendly, high level of service and honest recommendations, as well as high quality products.
Free Hearing Health Check
This is a quick, non-invasive and comfortable assessment of your hearing and ear health. If any form of hearing loss is detected, you will then have the option to book in for a full hearing assessment or possibly an ear wax removal appointment.
Ear Wax Removal
Not all hearing loss requires the use of a hearing aid for correction, it can simply be a build up of ear wax! If wax is detected at your free hearing health check we will recommend a wax removal appointment. Usually you will need to use olive oil ear drops for a week prior to your appointment, in order to soften the wax before it can be effectively removed. If you have been advised to book a wax removal appointment by your GP, please ensure that you do still use olive oil ear drops for a week prior to your appointment.
Full Hearing Assessment
A full hearing assessment is a 90 minute appointment, this is an in-depth assessment of your hearing function and a deep dive into your lifestyle and requirements, so that we can find the best hearing aid to complement your daily activities. You will be given the opportunity to hear how your hearing can be improved and potentially to take trial hearing aids into noisier real-world settings.
Raj has hand-picked industry leading hearing aids at competitive prices, from manufacturers including Phonak, Unitron and Widex.
