Hearing tests, hearing aids and ear wax removal in Lockerbie

Complete hearing care available at your local Amplify Hearing Audiologist at James Kidner Opticians in Lockerbie

Hearing tests & hearing aids in Lockerbie

Anyone over the age of 18 can get a hearing test, and if you’re aged 55 or over, you’re entitled to a FREE hearing test and hearing healthcare check up. This is because hearing loss is largely, but not always, age related. We recommend booking a hearing test every year. You don’t need a GP or ENT referral, just fill in the form below to request an appointment with an independent audiologist at our Lockerbie hearing care practice.

If you need, or already have hearing aids, as part of your hearing consultation with our audiologist, we will explain the various types of hearing aids to you, and make recommendations based on your hearing loss, your needs and usage of the hearing solution. And because we are independent, you can choose from a full range of hearing aids from all the leading manufacturers, unlike many hearing aid providers.

Ear wax removal in Lockerbie

Earwax is good for the health of your ears and it plays a vital role in preventing infection and removing debris from the ear canal. However, some people produce more than others, making them prone to a build-up over time that can become hard and impacted, leading to irritation, hearing loss, or infection, if not removed. Our qualified audiologists at our Lockerbie practice can provide effective and safe ear wax removal for  instant relief from any pain or discomfort.
