Blocked ears can be frustrating and painful. Our team of qualified nurses at Clear Ears use effective microsuction technology to clear wax and debris from your ear canals. This is the same method used by ENT specialists, GPs and audiologists. It’s safe, gentle and dry.
Not enough earwax can lead to itchy ears. Too much can build up and cause blockage, leading to problems with hearing, tinnitus, dizziness and earache. This is more common in people who wear hearing aids or use earbuds or ear plugs regularly.
It’s tempting to use a cotton bud, paper clip or hair pin to try to remove wax from your ears, but this disrupts the natural cleaning mechanism of the ear. Often you will end up pushing your earwax deeper towards the more sensitive structures and create a bigger problem. You also run the risk of damaging the ear canal or eardrum, which can lead to pain, infection and sometimes loss of hearing.
Our team have been trained in the use of microsuction and curettage techniques to clean your ears gently and safely. Your treating nurse will discuss and assess your ear health, clean your ears and provide education on looking after your ears and managing your earwax. The procedure is conducted in line with all relevant Australian standards and with the use of personal protective equipment.
No referral is required, and all locations are now open with air purifiers for extra protection. For more information or an appointment, visit www.clearears.com.au or call 1300 327 929.
