Clear Ears provides safe, effective and professional ear wax removal using microsuction technology. Clear Ears employs registered nurses who are trained in microsuction and curettage techniques to conduct the simple procedure in accordance with all relevant Australian Standards.
The procedure involves the nurse placing a small speculum (funnel) into the ear canal and viewing the ear canal and drum with loupes (converged binocular vision glasses) or microscope. Then using micro-suction and/ or curettage techniques the earwax or blockage is removed.
1. QUESTIONS & INSPECTIONS – The Nurse will discuss your health, and your ear health with you, and then proceed with assessment using the speculum and loupes
2. WAX REMOVAL VIA MICROSUCTION – The nurse attaches the suction catheter to the suction unit and begins the earwax or blockage removal process. This can generate noise and does require the patient to keep their head still.
3. WAX REMOVAL VIA ALTERNATE METHODS – A curette or forceps may be used to gently remove any wax or blockage that is in the ear canal that cannot be removed by microsuction.
