If you think you’re experiencing hearing loss or low vision, then it’s important to get professionally checked.
Of course, this isn’t always possible right away. Not only do you have to book in an appointment, but you also have to pay quite a bit of money.
Fortunately at Assistech we’ve got a number of free hearing and visual tests to give you a better understanding of your situation.
Disclaimer: The tests have no clinical value. Seeing a licensed audiologist, hearing aid specialist, or eye doctor for a proper test is recommended.
Basically, there are two different hearing tests.
The first option, Take Free Hearing Test, plays tones from 500Hz up to 8kHz, prompting for a Yes or No answer to the question, “Can you hear this sound?” This is again easy to use and a quick way to identify if you have any hearing loss at certain frequencies.
The second option, Listen to Environmental Sounds, is less of a test but still worth checking out. It’s basically an environmental soundboard, containing sounds from various animals, locations, wind and fire, etc.
Visual Acuity Test
The visual tests are a little more complicated.
This visual acuity test asks you to read out all the letters on the screen, it’s a fairly common visual test that most eye doctors conduct.
Having another person when taking this test will be helpful as the test requires you to stand 3-4 meters away from the screen.
Optical Illusion Test
The interesting test!
The optical illusion test provides you with five images before asking questions on each one. This test identifies how well your visual sense and short-term memory is.
Not only that, but it’s great way to have a good laugh and trick your mind!
