We want to help you hear the
beautiful sounds of life
Lynette Snyman Audiology is dedicated and passionate about helping those
with hearing loss reach their full hearing potential.
Our practice runs a Tinnitus Clinic specializing in minimizing ringing sounds in the ear(s).
Lynette travelled overseas to attend a world-class Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) course for tinnitus and hyperacusis at the University of London in the UK.
Only a handful of practices in South Africa can provide you with this specialized treatment.
If you feel you are missing out on conversations…. missing the joy of children’s laughter, missing a special message whispered in your ear, missing beautiful bird song – generally, losing out on life, you may have a hearing loss.
It’s imperative to seek appropriate testing
Neonatal Hearing Screening
It is crucial that your baby’s hearing is screened as soon as possible after birth.
Hearing loss affects approximately 2-4 per 1000 live births and it has been estimated to be one of the most common disabilities present at birth. It is a quick and painless procedure that can be done when your baby is sleeping.
Industrial Hearing Screening and Testing
Hearing damage is an actual and unfortunate effect of long-term exposure to loud noise. Noise is a risk of industrial workers and workers of any occupation who are exposed to loud noise.
We play a vital role in identifying noise-induced hearing loss – protecting the rights of the employer as well as the employee.
We provide custom swim earplugs for all ages. The advantage of custom swim plugs is that they tend to be higher quality, therefore last longer. Hygiene is also a factor; they are re-usable and washable. Our professional Audiologists will assist you to find the product that best fits you or your child’s need.
The most common cause of hearing loss is exposure to loud sounds. Loud sounds can damage hair cells inside the ears. Hair cells change sound waves to electrical signals that the brain can interpret as sounds. Louder sounds, which have greater intensity than softer sounds, can damage hair cells more quickly than softer sounds.
