The cost for our Ear Syringing Service is £25 for 1 ear or £40 for 2 ears (if they are both done at the same appointment). During the appointment, our trained healthcare professionals will carry out an initial consultation of the ear(s) and will only proceed if it is appropriate to do so. You may be advised to return at a later date if following the consultation, it is deemed inappropriate to provide the service.
Before your appointment…..
It is important that the wax has been softened to make the procedure as effective as possible. We recommend using olive oil ear drops 2-4 times daily for 7 to 10 days prior to your appointment to soften the wax. After using olive oil, your ears may feel more blocked up and might experience reduced hearing. This is because the wax will soak up the oil.
Avoid wearing your hearing aid(s) (if you wear one) after you put olive oil in your ears as you could damage them.
If you experience a foul taste after using olive oil, stop using it immediately and contact us or your GP as this could be a sign that there is a hole in your eardrum.
