What is Ear wax?
Ear wax, also known as cerumen, is a natural substance produced in the ear canal. It helps to protect the delicate skin and tissues in the ear, and acts as a barrier against dust, dirt, and other foreign particles. The normal amount of earwax is usually sufficient to keep the ears healthy, but sometimes the wax can become impacted, leading to symptoms such as hearing loss, ringing in the ears, ear pain, and discomfort. In these cases, it may be necessary to remove the excess earwax to restore comfort and hearing. It is important to seek the advice of a healthcare professional for proper earwax removal, as attempting to remove earwax using cotton swabs or other objects can push the wax further into the ear canal and cause damage.

What is ear microsuction?
Ear microsuction can be likened to an ear vacuum. It is essentially the process of cleaning out your ear wax safely with a suction machine whilst using a microscope as the primary viewing equipment. The suction machine is used at calibrated pressure levels to remove ear wax safely from your ears. “Micro” refers to the microscope used to look into your ears during this procedure, while “suction” refers to the machine used to draw out the ear wax, hence “microsuction”.
Endoscopic wax removal is a more advanced option for looking into your ears during ear cleaning as it provides a real-time view of your ears. We always offer our customers endoscopic wax removal as a first option because it is the most advanced technique. Most of our clients enjoy seeing the video recording of the ear cleaning process. We use our CE-marked endoscope called VerifEYEd View.
What is the best way to remove ear wax?
Various techniques can be used for professional ear cleaning. The best technique depends on the nature of ear wax to be removed.
Our preferred method at Verified Hearing is endoscopic wax removal using a suction machine because this is the most advanced technique. However, in some cases, we would need to use a sterilised instrument, such as a Jobson Horne or ear hook, to remove the ear wax gently. Patients sensitive to loud sounds or who suffer from tinnitus may find the sound of a suction machine unpleasant. So, we tend to avoid using it in such cases.
Although ear irrigation is becoming less and less popular, there are times when this is the most suitable technique for ear wax removal. In such cases, we do not hesitate to employ it, using only the safest irrigation machine.
