Long Island Hearing Services at SightMD

Audiologists And Hearing Specialists

Hearing and sight are two of your most important senses. They rely on each other and work together to create a picture of the world around you. When one falls behind, the other tends to overcompensate, and then struggles to keep up. Think of when you have to turn down your radio to see the street signs better.

Most people understand the significance of good eyesight. They correct poor vision with glasses, contact lenses, and corrective surgeries. But did you know that proper hearing also has a significant impact on your health? In addition to the challenges of getting through your daily life with limited sound, untreated hearing loss can lead to:

  • Anger and a negative outlook on life
  • Social isolation, loneliness and feelings of rejection
  • Depression (which can result in fatigue, stress and tension)
  • Risk to personal safety as a result of decreased alertness
  • Impaired memory and difficulty learning

Take care of your hearing and add a routine hearing exam as part of your annual physical. Preventative services can help detect hearing loss before it starts. This can help reduce any negative impact on your life.

What Does an Audiologist do?

Our team of audiologists can evaluate and diagnose various hearing issues to help improve your ability to hear clearly. Our comprehensive services include:

Hearing Exams and Evaluations

Are you having trouble hearing? Have you failed a hearing screening? An audiologist can test your hearing and help you find ways to improve your hearing.

Hearing Aid Consultations and Fittings

Choosing a hearing aid that is appropriate for your hearing loss and for your lifestyle can seem like an overwhelming process. The doctors at SightMD are highly trained in selection, programming, fitting, and the ongoing servicing of your hearing aids. Our clinics offer the latest digital hearing aids from top international brands. Making the decision to wear a hearing aid should help to improve the quality of your life.

Earmolds, Ear Plugs, and Monitors

A leading cause of hearing loss is sudden or prolonged exposure to loud noise. However, once you notice that you may have hearing problems, it’s often too late to protect your hearing.

Hearing protection is important if you are often in loud places for work or hobbies. It helps prevent damage to your ears. SightMD offers several types of hearing protection for industrial workers and home/hobby use.

Why Would a Baby See an Audiologist?

Hearing loss interferes with a child’s brain development affecting communication development. This includes everything from school performance to social relationships and emotional well-being. Our pediatric audiologists provide evaluation and treatment for children with hearing loss and hearing disorders. This allows them to hear and communicate to the best of their ability.

What Does an Audiologist do for Tinnitus?

Tinnitus is when you experience ringing or other noises in one or both of your ears. The noise you hear when you have tinnitus isn’t caused by an external sound, and other people usually can’t hear it. Tinnitus is commonly caused by factors such as aging and hearing loss, ear injuries, or problems with blood circulation. Aging and hearing loss are common causes of tinnitus.

Tinnitus can also be caused by ear injuries. Problems with blood circulation are another possible factor contributing to tinnitus. This can vary from being bothersome to making it difficult to concentrate. Our team of experienced doctors can assist in developing a strategy to improve your quality of life.
