Free Hearing Test
A touchscreen hearing screening test is available on our technology wall at our clinics. It takes 3 to 5 minutes to perform the self-assessment on our dedicated I pads. The test is calibrated to the testing environment taking into consideration any background noise at the shopping centre hence the test results are a very accurate representation of your hearing levels. However, we offer free full diagnostic hearing service with one of our fully qualified and medicare registered clinicians should you fail the self-assessment on our iPad touch screens. Our trained facilitators and friendly Hearing Services officers are approachable and would assist you through your journey of hearing rehabilitation at every step.
At Australian Audiology, we have the latest High-resolution Video Otoscope – “VIOT” from Interacoustics Denmark that provides high definition images of the ear canal and ear drum. All our patients undergo a video otoscopy prior to a hearing test as a routine standard at no extra cost. We are happy to supply high definition images to all referring GP’s and ENT specialists to help in the diagnosis and treatment solution for various ear conditions.

Tympanometry Eustachian Tube Dysfunction Tests
Our Interacoustics AT 285 is a full diagnostic middle ear analyser. It has variable probe tones, a 286 Hz probe tones for adults and a high frequency 1000 Hz probe tone for children. A high-frequency tympanometry is recommended for children as their ear canals are not fully developed and normal tympanometry fails to give out accurate results using standard probe tones. Both Ipsilateral and Contralateral reflex test are also available to help in the diagnosis of retro-cochlear disorders.
We also do automated eustachian tube dysfunction for blocked ear feeling.
Wax Removal & Cerumen Management
At our practice, we have a wax management suite . We routinely provide dry method wax removal by using vacuum pump and cannulas, and wet method ear irrigation technique using Propulse – ear irrigators. We use Vorotekoscope and Varitek wax rings and Jobson probes for physical removal and extraction of wax with our trained clinical specialist. Wax removal may require multiple sessions and pre-treatment with ear wax softeners. A flat fee of $40 plus GST is payable by non-pensioners.
