It’s important that the wax has been softened to make the procedure as comfortable and easy as possible, so to prepare for your appointment, we would recommend using olive oil based drops/spray to soften it.
A spray known an Earol is ideal for this. Read the instructions leaflet carefully and use for 2-3 days between 1-2 times daily before your appointment. Other eardrops or sprays are available any local pharmacy.
Your ears might feel more blocked up after using olive oil and might reduce your hearing – this is because the wax will soak up the oil and swell up.
We remove ear wax from the ear using a procedure called MICROSUCTION. This is done with a low power suction device like a vacuum which collects the ear wax. Throughout the procedure, the clinician has a clear view into the ear canal using microscopic lenses which enables safety and efficiency. There are many benefits of using micro suction over other techniques:
