Hearing and Vision Testing at the Department of Family Medicine

Hearing and vision screenings are simple tests that determine if you might have problems with your hearing or vision. They are part of routine care of children as they grow and adults of various ages.

What to Expect During Hearing and Vision Tests

Hearing (audiology) screenings require you to report what you hear when listening to sounds. This test assists our doctors in diagnosing hearing loss or other hearing disorders.

Vision screenings include routine eye exams to diagnose and treat eye disorders.
