  1. The Audiology Clinic The Audiology Clinic is a private independent diagnostic audiology practice. The specialists at the audiology clinic provide prevention, assessment and management of patients suffering from hearing, tinnitus and balance (vertigo/dizziness) disorders. We see patients of all age group including children and new born. Audiology Specialist Services HEARING:Hearing loss is when there is sudden or gradual decrease in how well you hear. It is one of the most common conditions that affect older and elderly adults. Nearly 1 in 3 people between the age of 65 and 75 has hearing loss. Approximately 50% of People older than 75 have difficulty in hearing. Person with hearing loss finds harder to understand and follow doctor’s advice, to respond to warnings and to hear doorbells and alarms.

  2. BALANCE: You are not the only one. Dizziness or loss of balance is one of the most common complaint and affects 20 to 30% of general population. National Institute of Health (USA) statistics indicate that dizziness will occur in 70% of the population at sometimes in their lives. There are 3 systems in the body that helps in maintain balance and that is eyes, ears and sensory system of the body (such as muscles and joints) TINNITUS: Tinnitus is defined as perception of auditory sensation in the absence of any external stimulation. The auditory sensation could be ringing or other head noises that are not produced by an external source. Tinnitus can occur in one or both ears, range from very low to very high pitch, and may be continuous or intermittent. Its perceived volume varies and can range from subtle to shattering. Continuous tinnitus can be annoying and distracting, and in severe cases it can cause psychological distress and interfere with normal life. MICROSUCTION: We all have wax and little bit of wax in the ear canals is completely ok. In a normal process the wax comes out on its own from the ear canals. But sometimes the wax can build up in the ear canals and this can make ears feel blocked. Common methods of ear wax removal are ear syringing and Microsuction is recognised as the best and safest method of ear wax removal. As the name suggest in microsuction the wax is sucked out using medical suction tube under specialised ear microscope. There is no water used in microsuction.. In ear syringing also called ear irrigation water is pumped into the ear at a controlled pressure to remove wax. HYPERACUSIS: Hyperacusis is a disorder in which a person finds intolerance to sounds otherwise it seems normal to most people. People who suffer with hyperacusis may find normal environmental sounds too loud. However it can vary from person to person as for an example, some may find loud noise not tolerable while some people may find certain noise particularly annoying. Severity of sensitivity to sounds vary from minor nuisance to having major impact on person’s life. It can affect any age group and is quite common in children.
