Hearing Tests


Image

If you’re thinking of getting your hearing tested, congratulations on getting this far. Most people wait an average of seven years before they seek help with their hearing problem. Whether you were born with a condition or developed it over the course of your life, Evergreen Audiology can assist in measuring any hearing damage you might have, and recommending the best course of treatment.

We might do a series of tests to identify your hearing loss, including pure tone assessments and speech testing. Some questions will also be asked about your medical history, which are important in identifying any underlying causes.

Dr. Lawson recently spearheaded a clinical and hearing conservation outreach program which provided hearing services to over 28,000 soldiers and their families. You can be sure that he will provide you with the caring guidance that you need.

Custom Hearing Protection

People who engage in leisure activities where they are routinely subject to noise levels over 90db increase their likelihood of suffering hearing loss by 10 percent, according to a recent study. Once developed, this hearing loss cannot be reversed, so prevention is of utmost importance. With the right hearing protection, there’s no need to let the threat of hearing loss get in the way of your work or leisure activities.

Dr. Lawson is an expert in hearing protection. As an active duty audiologist based at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) in Bethesda, MD, he learned a great deal about protecting military servicepeople from the loud sounds they might encounter in the course of their duty. Transferring this expertise to more civilian uses, we can administer hearing protection to individuals engaged in a plethora of leisure pursuits.

Dr. Lawson is also a certified Course Director for the Council for Accreditation in Occupational Hearing Conservation (CAOHC). We hold regular hearing conservation classes on demand. We also offer mobile testing and off-site hearing health education. If you are an employer and wish to adhere to the recent hearing safety standards set by the OSHA, contact us today to see how we can help.

Assistive Listening Devices


Sometimes we need a little extra help with our hearing loss on top of our existing hearing aids. Assistive listening devices (ALDs) offer that extra boost to help you with essential tasks you may have. There are options to help you use the telephone, watch television, attend meetings or converse in difficult listening situations.

If you use a landline phone and have internet access, the Americans with Disabilities Act provides free captioned telephones to those who have been approved by a hearing healthcare professional. Evergreen Audiology works directly with CaptionCall to provide these captioned phones to the community.

If you think you could benefit from a captioned phone or another assistive listening device, Dr. Lawson will be happy to advise you and answer any questions that you may have.

Tinnitus Treatment



Those who have ever experienced an unwanted ringing or buzzing sound in their ears know the effect that tinnitus can have on our day-to-day lives. The impact of tinnitus differs from person to person, but in severe cases can result in increased stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression. As the sounds of tinnitus are usually only heard by the individual, it can be a very personal and isolating condition to live with.

Tinnitus can be caused by many factors, including:

  • Age-related hearing loss
  • Noise-induced hearing loss
  • Medications
  • Earwax build-up

As everyone experiences tinnitus slightly differently, we will look at your particular case, examine your ears and, if necessary, run hearing tests to form a clearer picture of the nature of your tinnitus.
While there is no known cure for tinnitus, thousands of people across the US are able to manage their symptoms successfully through the use of hearing aids equipped with sound masking programs, or tinnitus retraining therapy. The latter uses sound therapy to help your brain interpret the sounds in a different way which makes it easier to manage the sounds on a daily basis.

Hearing Aid Repair

Are your trusty hearing aids looking a little worse for wear? All hearing aids will need to be professionally maintained at some point in their life. It can be very easy for earwax and other material to get lodged in the crevices. Without maintenance, hearing aids can easily break down at the most inconvenient of times.

Our practice can offer help in identifying the problem with your device, and if it is able to be fixed, then we are happy to offer that service. If the device is still under warranty, the repair will be complimentary. For your added convenience, walk-ins are welcome and you can drop off your hearing aids at any time.
