EAR WAX REMOVAL FAQ’s
A blocked ear can occur at any time, so having your ears checked regularly to assess their health and identify any build-up of ear wax or other concerns is good practice.
It is important that any sudden change of hearing in one or both ears is taken seriously. This could be due to something as simple as a blockage with ear wax, however in some cases urgent assessment and treatment may be required.
Please feel free to contact us if you need any ear and hearing care advice from our Audiologist.
The fee for ear wax removal is £40.00 for one ear and £60.00 for two ears. Your Audiologist will always check both ears and help you decide on the best option for you.
If you do not have a build-up of ear wax then your Audiologist will carry out a comprehensive ear health check and advise on any further action needed. The fee for this service is £25.00.
It is very important to address any hearing concerns, and as such we can offer a full hearing assessment should you wish to have this instead. The fee for a hearing assessment is £33.00.
The short answer is no. Microsuction is commonly regarded as the safest and most effective technique for removing ear wax, and does not require any pre-treatment with oil or drops.
At the beginning of the appointment your Audiologist will complete a short medical history with you relating to ear and hearing health.
We then inspect each ear using a video otoscope and display this on screen for you to view. This allows your Audiologist to assess your ear wax and select the best removal technique.
Ear wax can be removed using either microsuction, irrigation or manual instrumentation. Microsuction is our standard procedure, however on some occasions a combination of techniques is required.
Your Audiologist will explain each procedure and ensure you are comfortable along the way.
At the end of the appointment we will inspect your ears again using the video otoscope to ensure they are clear and provide any ongoing ear and hearing health advice as needed.
Your Audiologist will also be very happy to answer any questions you may have.
Your ear wax removal appointment can last up to one hour, although it may take less time depending on the level of ear wax and procedures used.
