How ears and hearing are assessed 

At your initial visit, your audiologist will usually carry out tests to assess your hearing ability, as well as to check the general health of your ears. 
Here we give a brief summary of some of the more common tests your audiologist may conduct during your appointment. The actual tests you will be asked to participate in will depend on your audiologist’s professional judgement – so you should not be alarmed if you leave your appointment without having taken part in all of these.
