Specsavers Audiology Launch

06 Oct 2017


Specsavers Mandurah Forum has launched a new audiology service to customers, revolutionising the industry for Australia by offering hearing aids and care at clear, low prices.


But while affordable services and products are important, Specsavers Audiology Mandurah Forum’s new owner and audiologist Jieun Park says professionalism and customer care is the key to success.


“I have been an audiologist for the past six years and in that time I have worked both in the private and public sector of audiology. After graduating with a neuroscience degree I wanted to pursue a career which involved human interaction as I enjoy working with people and audiology was an opportunity for me to get involved to service the community. I was drawn to audiology because by rehabilitating one’s hearing, we can reconnect people back with their loved ones,” says Jieun.


Joining Specsavers Mandurah Forum, Jieun is most looking forward to owning her own audiology clinics that align with Specsavers’ values.


“Specsavers offers professional eye care and eye wear and is now extending its values to hearing, offering the best technology hearing aids at affordable price points.


“At the moment it takes most Australians 7-10 years to acknowledge they have hearing loss before they do anything to help it – if they do anything at all. During these years, I have personally seen so many cases where the individual becomes unable to effectively join in on conversations, so they disengage socially and start to become isolated. I’m looking forward to Specsavers coming into the market and offering far more affordable hearing solutions with professional care,” says Jieun.


One in six Australians experience hearing loss, yet only one in three does anything about it. On top of this, new Specsavers research has shown that over half of Australians (57%), 18 years and over, have experienced moments where they felt concerned about their hearing.


Specsavers’ Executive Director of its newly created audiology business, Darrel Magna says the new audiology offering is giving Australians exceptional value in hearing aids and care as well as the expert service that the Specsavers brand has become well-known for.


“By offering audiology, we’re providing truly accessible health care for our customers’ ears as well as their eyes. The earlier we detect and treat hearing loss, the less of an impact the problem will have on a person’s hearing long term.


“All customers at Specsavers Mandurah Forum will now have a free five minute hearing screen included as part of their overall eye health test in store. We don’t want Australians to have to wait 7-10 years to do something about their hearing challenges, especially if it means they can’t live their lives to the full,” he said.


If you feel like your hearing isn’t as good as it should be, Specsavers Audiology Mandurah Forum are now taking bookings for free 15 minute hearing checks. If further testing is required, comprehensive hearing assessments with Jieun are being offered for $49. If you require hearing assistance as a result, the stores have a range of hearing aids designed and built by leading manufacturers, which feature cutting-edge innovations in hearing assistance. A pair of hearing aids starts from $1495.
