TOP QUESTIONS WE HEAR FROM PATIENTS

How long does it take?

When can I get back to work?

Can I drive after MY APPOINTMENT?

Yes, the treatment won't affect driving or operating machinery.​
 

Is it safe to clean my ears with cotton buds?

No, cotton buds push wax further down the ear canal which can damage the very sensitive canal skin and can even be pushed through the eardrum.
 

How do I know if I need to have my ears cleaned?

Affected ear/s may be:

  • Itchy

  • Have a feeling of fullness

  • Have decreased hearing

  • If there is a lot of wax there may be pain

  • Dizziness

  • May be ringing/buzzing

Some of these symptoms are also associated with other ear conditions and should be checked out by a health professional.
 

What is micro-suction?

Micro-suction is one of the safest ear wax removal methods from the ear canal.  The specially trained nurse or doctor uses a microscope to visualise your ear canal while they clean it.  They use a small ear suction device to remove any blockage as they watch under the microscope.
