How is Hearing Loss Diagnosed?

Hearing loss is diagnosed through a hearing test conducted by an audiologist. 

Hearing loss is diagnosed through medical history, physical exams, and hearing tests conducted by audiologists for accurate evaluation.

Otoscopy is a procedure in which the doctor uses an otoscope to examine the ear canal and eardrum. This can help identify any physical abnormalities that could be affecting hearing.


Pure-tone audiometry is the most common type of hearing test. It measures how well you can hear different tones at different volumes.

Speech audiometry measures how well you can understand speech in noise. This test is important for people who have difficulty hearing conversations in noisy environments.
