If you have a history of hard compacted wax then you are welcome to soften your ear wax for 3
days prior with lightly warmed oil such as unused ricebran or olive
oil prior to coming This will make removal easier and more comfortable
for you. Alternatively, purchasing a wax softening product from a
pharmacy and using for two days prior to your visit can be useful.
Otherwise just come as you are.
For those who wear hearing aids, it may be necessary to have wax removed more frequently. This can be due to the partial blocking of the ear canal by the hearing aid preventing wax from exiting the ear by normal process. This build up affects the ability of hearing aids to work well. Also the mildly corrosive effects of wax on hearing aids decreases the long term life of your hearing aid investment.
