Tinnitus is the perception of a sound that has no external source. Some of the more common sounds reported are ringing, humming, buzzing, and cricket-like. It can be constant or intermittent and is heard in one ear, both ears or in the head. Millions of people in the U.S. have tinnitus. People with severe tinnitus may have trouble hearing, working or even sleeping.
Audiology Island specializes in the evaluation and management of tinnitus. Our comprehensive, multi-disciplinary approach identifies and addresses medical, psychological and hearing needs that contribute to tinnitus severity. We will work closely with you to develop just the right management plan for your tinnitus in order to diminish the negative effects it has on your daily lifestyle.
An audiological and medical evaluation is the first step. We will perform an array of tests that will provide information about your tinnitus, hearing, and hyperacusis. Some of these tests are specific to your tinnitus and are not normally performed in other clinics.
Based on the test results and we will formulate a treatment plan designed specifically for you. Patients will be offered a counseling session at which we will address concerns and questions, provide information about tinnitus and/or hyperacusis, discuss the causes of tinnitus, and propose a treatment plan. The treatment plan will depend on the results of the evaluation and it will be fully explained.
