Micro-suction of earwax is the safest and most comfortable way of earwax removal available. A quick Relief from your ear wax problem. 

Symptoms of an earwax build-up 

A build-up of earwax in your ear can cause:

  • Earache
  • Hearing loss

  • Ear Infections
  • Vertigo (a spinning sensation)

Industrial Hearing/Screening Tests

If you employ staff within a noisy working environment, it is a legal requirement under Regulation 5 of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1992 (MHSW Regs) to have your employees’ hearing checked and to provide them with hearing protection. At Our Hearing we provide workplace hearing tests services across the UK and other services to help you achieve a safer noise environment within your workplace.

Don’t try to remove a build-up of earwax yourself with your fingers, a cotton bud or any other object. This can damage your ear and push the wax further down.

Frequently Asked Questions


Microsuction is a method of removing ear wax/debris using microscopic vision and a gentle suction device. Unlike syringing/irrigation, the clinician can see the ear canal to safely extract the earwax. Microsuction is known to be the safest method for wax removal and in some cases it is the only method that should be used.

It is appropriate for:

  • Impacted wax
  • Perforated ear drum
  • Previous surgery/ unstable for syringing
  • Hearing aid user
  • Urgent removal due to poor hearing
  • Urgent removal due to flying or diving
  • Meniere disease
  • Vertigo

The use of an ear wax softener is not required and in most cases treatment is completed in one 20 minute session.​

Earwax, also known as cerumen, is a brown, gray, or yellowish waxy substance. It protects the skin of the ear canal, assists in cleaning and lubrication, and also provides some protection against bacteria, fungi, insects, and water. Wax usually passes out of the ears harmlessly, but sometimes too much can build up and block the ears.

Our hearing assessments include the following:

  •  Medical History – A detailed medical history will be taken.
  • Otoscopic Examination (Looking into your ear)- An otoscopic examination will be performed to check the health of your ears. This will allow us to check if there is any wax, debris or foreign bodies in the ears.
  • Hearing Test – A hearing test will then be conducted to determine whether your hearing is within the normal limits or not.

Your Audiologist will discuss the results of the hearing test with you and advise you on options you may have, depending on your results. If any results indicate you need to be seen by an Ears, Nose and Throat specialist we will recommend this option for you and also write to your GP so a referral can be done. Once you have received your report you are welcome to book a follow up appointment to discuss any queries you may have.
