In an eye test the results are made available on a card (the prescription). Is there the same approach with a hearing test?

Answer: 

Hearing tests are recorded on a chart known as an audiogram. It records the level of hearing for both right and left ears. Most audiologists will be happy to print off a copy of the audiogram for their patient/customer. However, slightly different to optics, it is very unlikely that an audiologist would prescribe and fit hearing aids to an individual without carrying out their own full hearing assessment.
