RINGING IN EARS?
Been told there is nothing you can do and you need to live with it?
We hear so many stories about people who have asked for help for their tinnitus whether from the GP or an audiologist only for them to be told there is nothing you can do about it you need to learn to live with it.
HERE’S THE THING – TINNITUS CAN BE TREATED AND OFTEN CURED.
At Firstsight we are passionate about hearing and wellbeing & that’s why it’s in our title; it reminds us that our patient’s wellbeing is paramount to our values.
Tinnitus management falls into this category as not all people with tinnitus will have hearing loss.
To that end they may require counselling and certain strategies to cope with tinnitus. Or perhaps they just need a better understanding of their tinnitus and how it affects others as well as themselves.
If tinnitus is bothering you or you may be curious about your tinnitus call us today and arrange a Tinnitus assessment or Tinnitus wellbeing appointment.
WE ABSOLUTELY DO NOT RECOMMEND THE USE OF COTTON BUDS FOR THE USE OF EAR WAX MANAGEMENT.
Another area which comes under our passion for wellbeing.
Tinnitus can affect anyone and in the worst-case scenario can drive a person to take their own life.
At Lanarkshire Hearing Centre we take tinnitus management extremely seriously. Tinnitus does not just effect people with hearing loss although statistics tell us that about 80% of tinnitus sufferers will have some form of hearing loss it can be brought on by mental or physical problems.
If you have tinnitus, even if you think it is mild, we urge you to book a Tinnitus assessment or Tinnitus wellbeing appointment with us today.
It all starts with an investigation into the health of your ears.
In depth discussion into your current medical history and if any existing medical conditions.

EAR WAX REMOVAL
If ear wax is the issue (the most common cause of tinnitus and hearing loss), we will remove the impacted ear wax and hopefully the hearing loss along with the tinnitus.
£40 for one ear £60 for two
If we find a treatable hearing loss we will treat that first. In most cases this will go a long way to drastically reduce the impact of tinnitus and completely mask the Tinnitus.
We will give you 30 days to try the hearing solution completely free of charge with no obligation.
