Ear Wax Removal

For many of the audiological tests and procedures it is important to have ear canals free of earwax, technically referred to as cerumen. Excessive cerumen blocking the ear canal can cause hearing loss, itching, irritation, pain, fullness.

The Removal Process:

A 30-minute earwax clearing appointment is pain free and includes:

  • Visualisation of the ear canal and earwax by either medical microscope or head-mounted magnifier
  • Earwax softening drops, if required
  • Removal of earwax via clinically appropriate techniques: including micro-suction (gentle vacuum), curettage (specially designed spoons) or low-pressure water spray
  • Post-removal check of the ear canal, ear drum and a medical opinion on ear health

Micro-suction is the safe, gentle way to unblock ears and remove ear wax.

Our audiologist will use microscope and suction pump to clean your ear canal and remove wax. You will sit in a comfortable chair and a small metal funnel will be placed gently in your ear canal to enhance the view.

Ear suction is carried out with a small sucker attached to a low-pressure suction machine that works like a gentle vacuum cleaner. Ear suction is noisy and you may feel a bit of discomfort. Occasionally mild dizziness may be experienced for a few seconds.
