About Audiology

Audiologists work with people who have hearing and balance problems. 

They help by:

  • preventing hearing loss;
  • testing and counselling people with hearing loss and tinnitus;
  • prescribing, fitting, and teaching about hearing aids, cochlear implants, and other listening devices;
  • managing ear wax;
  • teaching lip reading and listening skills;
  • testing for audiology processing disorders; and
  • testing for balance problems.
