Frequently Asked Questions:
Why hearing tests? Because the function of the eyes and the ears is to help you communicate and that has a lot to do with your quality of life. Many don’t realize there could be a problem with either or both their vision and hearing as the symptoms are easy to ignore for both, until it’s too late. Hearing loss accompanied with vision impairment (typically associated with ageing) can negatively impacts an individual’s ability to communicate with loved ones and can compromise their level of independence and in some cases, their self-esteem, if not given proper attention and care.
Who is conducting the hearing test? Beyond Vision has teamed up with Melody Audiology and Hearing Clinic, an Edmonton based, full-service hearing clinic that shares Beyond Vision’s desire to offer customer service beyond expectation. Registered hearing aid practitioner, Masuma Manji will be conducting the hearing tests at the Mill Woods clinic as of September 2015.
