Microsuction is particularly well suited for people who need to have wax removed from their ears but can’t get them wet. It is also suitable for people with extra sensitive ears or who have undergone ear surgery.

Although wax in the ear canal is normal, a build-up of excessive wax can cause problems, especially for hearing aid wearers. It can also lead to pain, discomfort and tinnitus.

At your ear care appointment you will also be given advice on ways to manage your wax problem and you will be offered the opportunity to have your ears checked regularly to prevent future wax build-up.

If you have any concerns about your hearing you can have a hearing check at the same time as your wax removal at no extra charge.
