Blocked ear? Can’t hear?
Banyo Clinic now has equipment for micro-suction of Ear Wax.
Unlike ear syringing, where wax is blindly flushed out, microscopy allows direct vision while the wax is being removed. This makes the procedure much quicker, safer and comfortable for the patient.
Other benefits include no water being flushed into the ear canal significantly reducing the risk of infection, pushing the wax in further, and most importantly, reducing the risk of trauma to the ear drum.
Unlike syringing it can also be performed in people who have a perforated eardrum or grommets. Suctioning is also useful to speed the recovery of outer ear infections (swimmer’s ear) and removal of foreign bodies such as beads and marbles.
Applying ear drops such as waxsol or olive oil for one to two days prior to removal ensures an even more comfortable procedure.
