While you’re in your local Specsavers store getting your eyes tested, you will be offered a short test for your ears at the same time. This is only available in our stores that offer audiology and is absolutely free. If this 5 minute hearing test indicates hearing loss, you will be encouraged to book in for further testing.

A free, 15-minute hearing check

Hearing checks are free and carried out by an audiology professional. The check takes 15 minutes and will provide the opportunity to discuss your hearing screening results and determine if a full diagnostic assessment is required.

Telehealth Consultation

A free 15-minute phone conversation with an audiology professional. A telehealth consultation carried out by phone with an audiology professional, to discuss your hearing health, hearing aids or hearing protection needs, and if required decide any next steps.

A hearing assessment

If further testing is required, you can book in for a comprehensive, hour-long, hearing assessment at a cost of $49 or you may be eligible for a free assessment through the Australian Government Hearing Services Program (HSP). During this appointment our audiology professional will perform a full ​diagnostic assessment of your hearing and will be able to determine if you would benefit from hearing assistance.

Our audiology professional will discuss your results with you and if you can be helped by hearing aids, they will explain the range available to you at Specsavers.

You are welcome to bring a friend or family member with you to this appointment.

What if I need hearing aids?

  1. A solution to meet your needs

    If you need to wear hearing aids, our qualified audiology professional will explain the range of aids that are suitable for you.

  2. Fitting your hearing aids

    It can take up to two weeks for your hearing aids to be made and your fitting appointment will take about 45 minutes. At your fitting appointment, we will show you everything you need to know about your new hearing aids and answer any questions you or your family may have.

  3. Follow up

    Once fitted, a follow-up appointment will be booked within four weeks to check that you are completely happy with your purchase and make any necessary adjustments to your hearing aids.

  4. Annual check

    We also recommend an annual checkup where we reassess your hearing and make any necessary adjustments to your hearing aids.

We would like to thank you for your kindness and help with all arrangements and tests for our new hearing aids. We are very happy with what difference it has made, making our lives much happier hearing one and another. They are perfect.
