The audiologists at the Hearing and Balance Center provide hearing evaluations to determine the degree and severity of hearing loss. These evaluations are performed on infants, children and adults. Conventional Audiometry is the most common hearing test for adults. In these tests, the patient wears earphones and responds to sounds heard. Hearing evaluations for infants and children include monitoring for visual clues.
