What is Tinnitus?

Posted On: May 29, 2021

Tinnitus is the perception of sound when there is no external sound present. It is commonly described as a ring, buzz, or hiss in the ears. The symptoms can vary from person to person. Some may only hear it when in a quiet room, while others hear it all the time.

If not well managed, it can become intrusive in one’s life. Tinnitus may cause symptoms of anxiety, stress, irritability and fatigue. 

The first step to tinnitus treatment is booking a hearing test at Eastern Audiology. Our experienced audiologists in Richmond, Narre Warren, Huonville and Bellerive will take a detailed history, assess your hearing and provide feedback on the possible causes of your tinnitus. Based on this information, our audiologists will recommend specific management strategies to help relieve your tinnitus awareness.
