Preparation for your ear wax removal appointment

** Important – Please put olive oil or similar into both your ears before your visit (even if only one ear seems blocked), ideally for 2-3 days morning and evening. This will potentially make your treatment more pleasant and comfortable as well as reducing the chance of a return visit. We recommend Earol.

N.B. If you have a perforated eardrum, please speak to us or your healthcare professional first before applying oil.

Payment

We accept card and cash on the day, £40 for one ear and £60 for both ears, if the ears are clear with nothing to remove we charge £20 and will offer advice on alternative treatment.

We are a fully functioning audiology clinic, our service can include video examination of the ear canal, a hearing screening check, tympanometry to assess middle ear dysfunction, GP referral if needed, and / or general hearing advice.

Safety and Hygiene

We can provide you with hand gel and a disposable face mask on request. For our part we will wear disposable gloves, apron and mask etc during the procedure and make use of disposable consumables. We work to the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene.

NB If you would prefer us to wear a mask for the whole duration of your visit rather than just the actual procedure please just ask!

Our very experienced staff only use the very best equipment to offer all three main methods of ear wax removal (microsuction, irrigation and dry removal) to ensure a pleasant experience in a safe and professional environment.

If you feel ill please tell us beforehand, we can always rearrange an appointment!

This is the second time I’ve been to Wigan Hearing in order to get my ear unblocked and both times Darren has been beyond fantastic. I am Deaf and only have a little hearing left so I have always been very fearful of letting anyone perform any procedures on my ears but I completely trust Darren, he takes as much time as you need to both explain what he is doing and why and he honestly made me feel calm and completely at ease at all times. Additionally Darren is very knowledgeable about a wide variety of audiological issues, no question is too small. I rarely write reviews but I’ve had two really great experiences at Wigan Hearing now and will definitely continue to go to Daren for ear related issues. I whole heartedly recommend Wigan Hearing to anyone who needs such services, you won’t be disappointed! Lizzie O’Rourke
