Normalising hearing care for the over 50s  

17 March 2022

Since Specsavers Audiology launched in Australia in 2017, we have screened more than 1.9 million customers for hearing loss.  

In our stores, every customer over the age of 50 has a hearing screener as part of the pre-testing before their optometry appointment. Our audiology professionals then discuss the preliminary results with the customer and guides them on the appropriate next steps.  

By screening all customers over the age of 50 – even those who do not come instore specifically seeking audiology services, Specsavers Audiology hopes to transform hearing awareness long before potential issues arise. 

FACT: For Specsavers Audiology, the hearing screener is not about selling hearing aids or meeting sales targets; it’s about normalising behaviours around overall hearing health and putting the needs of their customers first. Importantly, the screener forms part of an unrivalled awareness-building campaign, ensuring ear health becomes front of mind across our loyal customers and beyond. 

Our commitment to the health of our customers is what sets us apart and we invest in the time and technology to support our audiology professionals, so they can focus on the customers’ needs and hearing care.
