If this is to be your first time visiting us then please just come as you are with no pre softening. For some, if you have had wax removed before and been told that your ear wax was very hard and could use pre softening before removal, 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.
We see children of any age at a charge of $35.00 but your local District Health Board offers free ear services for children. Contact the Manukau District Health Board on 09 276 0000.
ACC funded hearing aids can have up to 50 free ear clean visits. So call us for an appointment. War Veterans who wear hearing aids who have a War Pensions card can also have ears cleaned free of charge.
