An Audiologist is a University trained professional, who has a thorough understanding of hearing loss and it's associated conditions. Audiologists specialise in the assessment and rehabilitation of hearing loss.
Audiologists work in hospitals, in government or corporate entities or as individual practitioners and should not be confused with audiometrists, who are trained to measure hearing (such as nurse audiometrists) or to dispense hearing instruments.
Eastern Audiology Services is a local business, staffed by Audiologists and Reception Staff, who are dedicated to the best outcome and service for our clients.

Hearing loss is common in Australia: for people over the age of 15 years, 22% of the population have some degree of hearing loss. For people aged from 55 years to over 80 years of age, the percentage of the population with a hearing loss increases from 11% to 78%, because of the influence of age-related changes.
Hearing loss can occur from birth and up to 12 in 10, 000 children may develop a degree of loss through accident or illness or other causes (acquired hearing loss) before the age of 17 years. This group will later include those who have developed hearing loss during noise exposure or the ageing process and accounts for the largest percentage of people with a hearing loss in Australia.Our Services

Hearing aids will help to restore hearing to some extent, but wearing even the most technologically advanced devices is not going to completely solve the problems confronted in communication, as hearing aids do not perform well over distance and do not replace normal, healthy hearing.
Hearing Aids will help to improve speech in quiet and when some background noise is present, but do not make loud noise softer, but should make loudness comfortable, over time.
