EAR WAX REMOVAL: Our safe ear wax removal service is now very popular and we have been awarded NHS contracts to provide this service.

EAR WAX MICRO-SUCTION
Micro suction ear wax removal is a proven, safe and comfortable process for ear cleaning. It does not involve the use of liquids, so there is no mess and no fuss. We recommend that you use Earol (olive oil) for a minimum 2 days prior to your appointment. An audiologist will examine your ear using a microscope (either fixed or with loupe glasses) and, using a fine low-pressure suction device, safely remove the blockage. Also, using a video otoscope we will show you the condition of the ear before and after the treatment.

SAFE – Micro suction is the preferred method of treatment for medical staff and patients alike for guaranteed effective removal of ear wax.
PAIN FREE – Micro suction is comfortable and in most cases the blockage is removed in minutes.
QUALIFIED – Experienced audiologists with additional training in aural micro suction ear wax removal preform this procedure
Micro suction Fees £50 for one ear or £75 for both ears (£15 consultation fee if no wax is found).
Home Visits Fee from £75 to £120 (£40 consultation fee if no wax is found).

Earol® is an effective method for instilling olive oil to soften compacted earwax and is suitable for all age groups and easy to use. £5.00

N.B: Attempting an ear ‘cleaning’ at home by using cotton swabs (Q-Tips), Kirby grips or other household items is a dangerous practice that can lead to hearing loss, punctured ear drums and impacted wax.

At the moment, this service is chargeable in Kirklees.
