We’re right here when you need us, so if you’re worried about your hearing, just pop into a store.
Should I have a hearing test?
It’s worth having your hearing checked if you notice a change in your hearing, no matter your age. More often than not, hearing loss happens gradually, so it’s not always easy to notice if you’re not hearing as well as you used to. However, there are a few signs you might need a hearing test to look out for.
At Specsavers, hearing tests are completely free with no obligation to purchase a hearing aid.
What if I need hearing aids?
If your test results indicate you’d benefit from a hearing aid, the audiologist will talk you through all the options that might be suitable for you. They may also take a mould of your ear canal so that your new aid fits properly. This can take up to five minutes and is completely painless.
In some cases, your hearing aids can be fitted on the same day as your test. They’ll be programmed to your needs and we’ll make sure you know how to use them before you leave the store. We’ll also organise a follow-up appointment after four weeks to check that everything is well and adjust the hearing aids if necessary. This may be via our RemoteCare service or with the fine-tuning app. Your audiologist will explain all the details during your initial appointment.
