What tests are carried out?
Ears: audiometry – hearing test; tympanometry – middle ear function test (only carried out when hearing test is not within a normal range).
Eyes: long distance vision tests – not a complete visual examination, but a simple screening test colour vision tests (Year 7 boys only).
NB All these checks are non-invasive, safe and should cause no discomfort.
