Mijana was great. He very kindly managed to squeeze me in as I was struggling with both ears being somewhat waxed up - or clogged up with wax rather; but he managed to remove what seemed was an impossible amount of wax out of both ears very quickly; efficiently and painlessly. Would definitely recommend. Nicest chap I’ve met in a while also.

I am an A&E doctor working in the NHS, and had quite a wax buildup in both ears. I needed an emergency ear wax removal as it was affecting my hearing and this is exactly what verified hearing provided. It was very professional and Mr. Otana did a wonderful job, and has stable hands. I am very satisfied and impressed and will highly recommend them. 🙂

Filled out a form whilst eating dinner. Got a call that night asking if I wanted to go in for an appointment and decided to go. Managed to solve my problem before it got any worse. Was kind, informative, honest and professional - I can't recommend this place enough. I can hear perfectly now, and this is something I won't take lightly! Me: "What's the best way to clean your ear?" Mr. Otana: "With your elbow."

I came to see Mijana because I was concerned about my ear and wanted a Harley Street audiology specialist to look after it rather than a GP, and I was not disappointed. Mijana is extremely warm and friendly, and was able to explain a lot to me very clearly... and I can hear again ! Cannot recommend him highly enough.

Ear wax removal for kids

Your kids are not left out. Cleaning your child’s ear is a delicate procedure that must be carried out with precision by a practitioner with relevant paediatric experience.

Our paediatric audiologist will remove ear wax of children who are two years or older. Especially for toddlers, the window of opportunity to remove the ear wax is very short. Hence, it is pertinent that you use olive oil (we recommend Earol from your local pharmacy) for at least two days before attending the appointment. This would ensure the ear wax is softened and can be removed quickly without causing your child any discomfort.

Precise and Safe E-Microsuction Ear Wax Removal

Precision – Large field of vision with endoscope allowing for more precision during ear cleaning than a microscope.

Comfort – Gentle ENT-grade microsuction ear wax removal equipment for safe ear cleaning.

E-Microsuction Technique

The endoscopic suction technique is the most advanced and safest ear cleaning procedure. This is the technique we use to remove your ear wax at all our London clinics. This advanced method of ear cleaning is only used in a limited number of clinics in London due to the high level of expertise and cost of equipment required. The endoscope provides a larger field of vision than devices that may serve a similar purpose e.g., the microscope. This allows for more precision during the ear cleaning procedure and reduces the risks of the procedure significantly. Peer-reviewed randomised control trials have named endoscopic ear wax removal a superior and safer technique when compared to procedures such as ear syringing, ear microsuction, or ear irrigation.

Terms and Conditions

We will obtain consent verbally or in written form before the ear cleaning procedure commences. If you are running late for your appointment, you must call or email the clinic to confirm you can still be seen on the day. You can postpone your ear wax removal appointment up to 24 hours beforehand at no cost to you. We will require payment upon completion of the procedure at the clinic. Ear wax removal home visits must be paid for as part of the booking process. Cash and card payments are accepted. We do not tolerate any form of abuse to our staff.

Frequently Asked Questions

See what people are asking

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.

Is ear cleaning offered in the NHS?

Ear cleaning is no longer one of the core services GPs are obliged to provide. The general advice is to use olive oil drops to encourage the natural mechanism of the ear canal to remove the wax. While this can get rid of the wax in some cases, impacted ear wax needs to be professionally removed, especially if it is causing a hearing loss, blocked ear sensation, pain or discomfort.

Recently, patients have reported increased difficulty accessing ear wax removal services in the NHS. Most GP practices or pharmacists do not offer ear cleaning services. While some NHS ear, nose, and throat departments still offer ear cleaning, priority is given to patients with more complex ear-related issues who have ear wax removal as part of their routine treatment. For instance, patients who have had a mastoidectomy in the past are more likely to get free ear wax removal on NHS. Most GPs recommend private ear wax removal for their patients. Usually, you do not need a referral for ear wax removal.

When is ear syringing or irrigation bad for me?

If you have a perforation—hole in your eardrum or are susceptible to outer ear infections, ear syringing would not be a good choice for your ear wax removal. We always offer to remove your ear wax with the most advanced technique first (endoscopic ear wax removal) and only use alternative ear cleaning techniques such as manual removal if needed. We do not offer ear syringing as it is unsafe and no longer recommended by the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence.

Which ear drops would you recommend for ear wax?

We recommend medical-grade olive oil ear drops or sprays from a pharmacy. If you do not have a perforation (hole in your eardrum), apply about two drops in your ear every day for a few days before your appointment. This helps to soften the ear wax.

Does Verified Hearing offer children’s ear wax removal services?

Yes. We have a senior paediatric audiologist who is part of our team. We can safely clear ear wax from your child’s ear(s).

Ear microsuction vs ear wax syringe

There is a fundamental difference between ear syringing and ear irrigation, although these terms are often interchangeably used. Ear syringing refers to the use of a manual syringe and water to remove ear wax. Ear irrigation involves removing ear wax using an ear irrigation machine. This machine uses water to dislodge ear wax at a safe pressure level. Ear syringing is no longer recommended.

The consensus amongst professional ear wax removers is that removing ear wax with a suction machine is the safest option. However, there are cases where ear wax irrigation or using other instruments for ear wax removal is appropriate, especially when performed with the correct equipment.

Does Verified Hearing offer private ear wax removal near me?

If you live in London or its neighbouring towns, we are your most convenient option for ear cleaning. We are on Harley Street which is easily accessible by private or public transport. We also offer a mobile ear cleaning service, so we can remove your ear wax at the comfort of your home.

Will my tinnitus go away after removing ear wax?

Tinnitus is a symptom of an underlying condition and not a condition on its own. Hence, there can be various causes of tinnitus, with ear wax being one of them. If ear wax is the cause of your tinnitus, we expect that your tinnitus will go away after your ear wax removal procedure. Otherwise, we will offer you a comprehensive hearing consultation at an additional fee.

Ear syringing in London: Is ear syringing safe?

You are not alone if you are asking this question. This is not the same question as “is ear cleaning with water safe?

The instruction from the National Institute for Health and care excellence is clear: “Do not offer adults manual syringing to remove earwax.” This decision was made based on evidence that pointed out the risks of ear syringing and potential side effects such as perforation (a hole in the ear drum), damage to the outer ear canal, tinnitus and vertigo.

The term ear syringing or ear flushing is sometimes interchanged with ear wax irrigation. However, they are different. While ear syringing is a term used to describe removal of wax using a manual syringe with water, ear wax irrigation uses a machine with a nossle that releases water at a safe pressure level to dislodge the ear wax.

Our preferred method is e-microsuction (the most advanced method of ear wax removal).

Audiologist ear wax removal

Professional ear wax removal should be performed by a qualified practitioner. All our staff are registered with the relevant professional bodies and maintain their continuous professional development portfolio to ensure you always get the highest standard of care.

Our service is audiology-led. This is important because one of the main concerns patients have in ear wax removal appointments is reduced hearing. In a few cases, we have found that patients do not have ear wax and require an urgent hearing assessment to rule out a sudden hearing loss. Sudden hearing losses are treated as an emergency and patients referred to A&E as there is typically a 50% chance of your hearing reverting to normal within the first two weeks. We also have excellent professional links with private ENT consultants and can refer you to get seen within 48 hours in an emergency.
