Ear Clinic Services
Diagnostic Hearing Assessments
$95 (GC $85)
Comprehensive hearing tests for adults, and children aged 4+.
If your child is younger than 4, we may still be able to perform basic ear health checks, such as screening for glue-ear.
Ear Wax Removal
$60 (GC $50)
Professional removal of wax/foreign objects from the ear canal. Methods may include micro-suctioning, curettes or forceps. We recommend using oil in your ears two nights prior to these appointments for ease of removal.
For safety, we are only able to offer wax removals for children aged 4+ who are able to sit well during the procedure (it can be noisy).
Middle Ear Health Checks
A basic screening of your ear health. This includes otoscopy (visual checking of the ear) and tympanometry (a pressure test which tells us if there is any fluid or glue-ear). This appointment is able to be done from ages 1+ and only takes 5-10 minutes to complete - easy for kids!
Hearing Device Consultations
An open and collaborative discussion about your hearing so we can recommend the right hearing devices to suit your hearing loss and lifestyle. We encourage family members to attend these appointments. These appointments are typically booked in conjunction with a diagnostic hearing assessment and are therefore included in the above cost.
Hearing Aid Fittings
Once we have selected the right hearing device package for your lifestyle and budget in the consultation, we use Real-Ear-Measurements to ensure the devices are correctly set up for your individual ear canal shape, size and hearing loss. After this, we spend time fine-tuning the hearing aids for your experiences. All hearing devices are fit with a two-month trial period in order to make sure you are 100% happy with them.
Hearing Aid Adjustments
We are able to clean, check, adjust and repair all hearing aids from leading hearing aid manufacturers. If it's your first time seeing us, we will do a new hearing assessment and Real-Ear-Measurements to ensure your current hearing aids are working as well as possible for you. If the devices need extra parts or to be sent away for a service, this may cost extra if they are outside of their warranty period.
Custom-made Hearing Protection
$200 - $300 (standard/filtered)
$1000-$2000 (electronic shooting plugs)
Through taking an impression of the ear canal, we are able to make custom moulds and ear-plugs to fit the exact shape of your ear. Options vary from simple sleep and swim plugs to Grade 5 earplugs and electronic shooting earplugs.
Workplace and CAA Hearing Tests
Workplace or Civil Aviation Authority hearing tests do not require as much time and can be completed within 30minutes. Please contact us for multiple workplace tests, as you may be eligible for a discounted rate and/or workplace visits to complete these.
