Micro-Suction Ear Wax Removal for Essex, London and Hertfordshire
As part of the complete hearing care service we offer our clients, we are delighted to offer Micro-Suction Ear Wax Removal at all of our DigiClear Centres.
Micro-Suction Ear Wax Removal explained
“Micro” – the microscope is used for a detailed view of the ear canal showing the size, shape and placement of the blockage. This high definition close-up helps us to understand the nature of the wax blockage and rules out any medical complications (see below). Using video otoscopy, we can show you how much wax is present. This also allows us to safely assess your ear and to decide the method needed to remove wax. “Suction” – the suction pump is used to gently but efficiently extract wax via a probe tube.
Continuing with the microscope and with a probe tube, the wax is gradually, safely and efficiently removed. No pressure and no water is introduced into the ear canal.
Depending on the degree of blockage and how long the wax has been stuck in the ear Micro-Suction ear wax removal typically takes 5-10 minutes per ear. We will then discuss ways to minimise future build up. As part of our ongoing care we keep a stock of ear wax removal drops which you can pick up any time.
The cost for this service is £35 for a consultation and then from £30 per ear. Some evening appointments are available with a flat fee of £95.
