Before we help you hear, we listen.

Oklahoma Hearing Center’s team of expert audiologists, along with the medical doctors at Oklahoma Otolaryngology Associates, provides each patient with unmatched hearing healthcare. Backed by cutting-edge technology and over 35 years of experience, our team understands that each person’s hearing loss is unique. Before recommending treatment solutions, we spend time listening to the patient, learning about what’s important in their life and then selecting the technology that will meet their needs best.

What is an Audiologist?

People with hearing loss can be assessed, treated and rehabilitated by an audiologist. Audiologists are healthcare professionals who provide patient-centered care focusing on the prevention, identification, diagnosis and treatment of hearing and auditory disorders of their patients. Hearing and balance disorders are extremely complex with medical, psychological and physical implications. Audiologists are required to be educated to provide treatment services and have knowledge of a large array of existing and emerging technologies, as well as interpersonal skills to counsel and guide patients and their family through the rehabilitative process of learning to live with hearing loss. To minimize the negative impact of any hearing loss disorder, Audiologists provide professional and personalized services which lead their patients to dramatically improved outcomes and quality of life. Audiologists are licensed and regulated in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. www.asha.org www.osha.org



What happens if I wait?

Most people will see an optometrist or get glasses as soon as they have difficulty seeing. But, for some reason, when hearing becomes a challenge, many people ignore or delay doing anything about it, rather than take corrective action.

Effects of untreated hearing loss

While your hearing loss may seem insignificant now, something you can deal with by simply turning up the volume of the television or asking family and friends to repeat themselves, studies have linked untreated hearing loss to (1):

  • Fatigue, tension, stress and depression
  • Avoidance or withdrawal from social situations
  • Reduced alertness/increased risk to personal safety
  • Impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks
  • Reduced job performance and earning power
  • Diminished overall health

20% less listening effort*

The Cognitive Hearing Science lab at Oticon’s Eriksholm Research Center utilized Pupillometry to study how patients react to stressful listening conditions. Using Pupillometry, a 20% reduction in listening effort was documented when using Oticon Opn™ in noisy environments.

Study Details

Study participants were asked to listen to a target voice with competing speakers while their pupils were monitored. The results show a reduction in pupil size when using OpenSound Navigator™, indicating less effort was required to perform the task.
