Are you struggling with Tinnitus?
You’re not alone. Research shows one in ten adults grapple with it.
Tinnitus is a condition characterised by the perception of noise or ringing in the ears when there is no external sound source. It can be temporary or chronic and may vary in intensity and levels of discomfort, impacting your quality of life, causing sleep disturbances, and difficulty concentrating.
Tinnitus is often a symptom of an underlying issue, such as age-related hearing loss, exposure to loud noises, earwax blockage, or certain health conditions.

Common Treatments for Tinnitus
The most common treatments for tinnitus focus on managing the symptoms rather than curing the condition, as tinnitus itself is often a symptom of an underlying issue.
Some of the treatments we use at Peter Byrom Audiology include:
If tinnitus is associated with hearing loss, hearing aids can be beneficial by amplifying external sounds and making the tinnitus less noticeable. Read more about our hearing aids
Lenire therapy is a specific form of neuromodulation using a device to deliver sequences of audio tones tailored to your tinnitus profile. Read more about . Lenire
Tinnitus Sound Therapy
This involves using external sounds, such as white noise or nature sounds, to mask or distract from the tinnitus. This can be done through devices or smartphone apps.
The effectiveness of Tinnitus treatments can vary among individuals, and there may not be a one-size-fits-all solution.
If you’re experiencing tinnitus, book an appointment with Nicole or Peter, who will help to determine the most suitable approach for your tinnitus.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. Is Lenire Therapy suited to certain types of tinnitus?
We recommend Lenire Tinnitus treatment to any patient suffering from subjective tinnitus not included in the contraindications list (see below). If you can hear a ringing or feel a tinnitus sensation, give us a call.
2. Does Lenire Therapy affect hearing aids?
If you have been fitted with a hearing aid within the last 90 days, we would not recommend tinnitus treatment until after the 90-day period, because you need time to settle and understand your hearing aid.
When you start your Lenire tinnitus treatment, we recommend you take your hearing aid out 1 hour before your treatment. This is a precaution we keep in place for patient safety.
3. What are the signs of tinnitus?
The first signs of tinnitus generally start with noise in the ear which could be a ringing noise, roaring, hissing, whistling or a buzzing sound. This noise could be constant or intermittent and varies from person to person.
4. Is Tinnitus Serious?
Tinnitus is not a disease but can be a symptom of something more serious. If you are suffering from Tinnitus, we recommend booking an appointment with your audiologist.
