Specsavers Clonmel and Thurles expert audiology team will be able to determine whether you have an earwax blockage by looking in your ears with an instrument called an otoscope, which magnifies and lights up the inner ear. The wax removal can be done by microsuction or ear syringing.

Microsuction earwax removal uses a vacuum to gently remove any excess wax from your ears while ear syringing is a technique of removing earwax that involves pushing water through the ear canal to flush out the wax. If left untreated, a build-up of ear wax can lead to infection. This is why it’s so important that you get your impacted earwax removed promptly and safely.
