Following an initial discussion regarding your health and hearing, we begin by examining your ears using a fibre optic camera. The camera sits just at the entrance of the ear, and enables both you and the audiologist to view your ear canal and ear drum on a large screen.
We will examine both ears, before proceeding with any wax removal required. Following treatment, we will show you your ear canals and drums again, this time without any wax blockage.
How long does the appointment last?
Appointments last approximately 10 – 30 minutes dependent on the treatment needed. Occasionally, an individual may need to return for some follow-up work if there has been an ear infection or some trauma to the ear canal.
Does microsuction hurt?
The procedure is performed slowly and should not cause any discomfort. If a client has any concerns during treatment the procedure is stopped immediately. Microsuction provides instant relief and is usually a revelation!
