We are now qualified to offer Microsuction Earwax Removal at our Practice in Port Erin. We felt that as part of our commitment to offering cutting edge service to our Patients, we should become qualified to perform micro suction services. We consider micro suction to be the safest and easiest method of earwax removal and that is why we decided to ensure it was available at our Practice.  

What is Micro suction?

Micro suction is a procedure which uses gentle suction to remove excessive or troublesome cerumen (earwax) from the ear. Ear wax micro suction is performed with the aid of an operating microscope and a finely calibrated suction device. It is undertaken without the introduction of any materials or liquids to the ear canal. Most ear wax removal is presently carried out through ear irrigation, which involves injecting a soft jet of water into the ear to remove the wax.  The old ear syringing method precedes ear irrigation and is very rarely performed any longer because of safety issues. Ear irrigation is not always effective and sometimes is described as uncomfortable or unpleasant by patients.

Micro suction on the other hand is well tolerated by the majority of people, it also delivers much quicker results than irrigation. It tends to be much more effective than any of the other traditional wax removal methods. It is a much safer way to remove wax, as the professional can clearly see the structures inside your ear canal as they work. 

Pre- Treatment With Earol

Usually micro suction does not need pre-treatment with drops, most people have their wax removed in one session without it.  However,if you wish to use drops, treatment of the ear or ears with two days of Earol (clinically treated olive oil) is the best preparation. During the appointment, we will examine your ear using our microscope identifying any issues. Then using a fine low pressure suction device, we will safely remove the earwax blockage from the ear canal. 


Micro suction is the preferred method of treatment for medical staff and patients alike for guaranteed effective and safe removal of earwax.


Micro suction is totally comfortable and in most cases the blockage is removed in minutes.


Only carefully selected fully qualified and experienced audiologists with additional training in aural micro suction earwax removal are qualified to offer micro suction earwax removal services.
