Hearing test results can be overwhelming and confusing. It is important to understand your results and how it may affect your daily routine so that you can be part of the conversation with your hearing provider.

Ear Wax Removal
The ear works to remove wax naturally through its self-cleaning mechanism and movement of the jaw. Generally, it requires no intervention, however, sometimes it builds up blocking the ear canal which may lead to discomfort, itchiness, a blocked sensation, or voices sounding muffled.
Unlike traditional ear syringing, with microsuction the ear is kept dry throughout the procedure making it easy to perform with minimal risk.
Microsuction is a comfortable and safe alternative to ear syringing and recommended by Ear nose and Throat specialists.
Ear Wax Removal Fees: $110 adult, $100 Pensioner & $85 Child (age 5 -15)
*Location over 10km from Currumbin may incur an additional travel fee

Central Auditory Processing Disorder
Central Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD) testing is now available at Coastal Audiology for children and adults.
CAPD is thought to affect about 5% of the population. It is a disorder in which the ears can hear normally but have difficulty processing and interpreting speech.
For people affected by CAPD, it can be difficult to concentrate and understand conversation and instructions in more complex environments such as when there are distracting noises like in classrooms, cafes/restaurants or other social settings with background noise. This can lead to learning, language and reading difficulties, increased fatigue and social withdrawal.
