Specsavers Ballina is delighted to announce the arrival of a state of the art hearing service to their Tone Street store this week. Local Councillors Seamus Weir and Michael Smyth were on hand to officially launch the new hearing centre, with Mid-West Radio’s Gerry Glennon broadcasting live from the store.

The importance of hearing health

Speaking at the launch, hearing director at Specsavers Ballina, Padraig McGowan commented, ‘We’re delighted to be officially opening our hearing centre in Ballina, our second in Co. Mayo. Hearing loss is an issue that effects many Irish people and today gives us an opportunity to remind people about the importance of looking after their hearing health. Together with Resident Consultant Audiologist, Darragh McGowan and our fantastic team, we are currently running a hearcare clinic in the Tone Street hearing centre from Monday – Saturday, from 9.00am until 6pm.’

On-site hearing centres

In addition to being experts in eye health, Specsavers now specialise in hearing with on-site hearing centres managed by qualified partners and staff. Specsavers hearing centres provide a free, three-minute hearing screenings, with no need to book a full appointment and no obligation to buy.

Hi-tech facilities

The screener lets customers know whether they would benefit from having a full hearing test, which takes about one hour. Each hearing centre boasts hi-tech facilities and sells quality hearing aids at great value-for-money prices. All Specsavers digital hearing aids are sold as part of a complete hearing package.
