Microsuction Earwax Removal At Our Clinic In Didcot.

DECEMBER 2020: IMPORTANT LOCKDOWN NOTICE

Updated 20th December 2020. As an Audiology Service, the Microsuction Earwax Removal Network is exempt from the requirement to close due to the full lockdown and Tier 1-4 rules and restrictions. This is specified in the most recent legislation The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 PART 3 Businesses permitted to remain open. 47: "Dental services, opticians, audiology services, chiropody, chiropractors, osteopaths and other medical or health services, including services relating to mental health."

In addition, according to the Goverment's advice in Tier 4: Stay at Home - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk), while travel is generally to be avoided, you can travel

  • within a Tier 4 area,
  • from a Tier 4 area to a Tier 1, 2 or 3 area,
  • or from a Tier 1, 2 or 3 area to a Tier 4 area
for the purpose of "visiting hospital, GP and other medical appointments or visits where you have had an accident or are concerned about your health".

See our full announcement at https://www.earwaxremoval.net/4993/news/tier-4-covid-19-update-20th-december-2020/

We take strict measures, including triaging every single patient, checking temperatures, wearing high level PPE, enforcing the wearing of a Type iiR surgical mask (which we will provide if you don't have one), and sanitising surfaces. Due to these measures, our clinic rooms are the safest place you can be whatever Tier level or R rate. Although some people are exempt from wearing face masks when entering a "shop", in the most recent government legislation Audiology Services are exempt from the definition of shop, so everybody must wear a mask, which we will provide, for the protection of others, otherwise treatment cannot be provided. You can find the relevant legislation here. You can find the full legislation here.

What Is Microsuction?

At The Microsuction Network, we NEVER syringe or irrigate!

Simply put, microsuction is the removal of ear wax from the ear canal using illuminating microscopes and gentle medical suction. At our clinics we use ENT-grade suction units and portable convergent microscopes, as well as disposable, sterile suction tips. Microsuction is considered the safest method of ear wax removal, and our training and experience ensure you will have a very safe procedure.

When the ear wax is very tough, or if there is a foreign body in the ear canal, such as a cotton bud tip, or an ear plug which has become stuck, we may use instruments, which are specially designed for removing ear wax and other objects from the ear canal. All of our staff are trained and experienced at using instruments. You may also see instrument removal also called "curettage" or "aural toilet", but we think "instrument removal" sounds nicer.

Why Don't We Irrigate (Syringe)?

Irrigation uses a high pressure water jet to dislodge the wax from your ear. It's like a mini jet wash, and has been known to rupture the ear drum and cause facial paralysis. The electronic ear irrigator has largely replaced the more old fashioned ear syringe, but it still has the same basic problem that it uses a pushing force and can push hardened wax further into your ear. More commonly, if the procedure does not completely remove your wax blockage, wax and water can be trapped in the ear and lead to a painful ear infection.

Microsuction needs a higher level of training than irrigation, a good eye and a steady hand. Some clinics say they do microsuction, but use inferior methods and equipment and when the wax is deep in the ear they give up and irrigate. It does not matter who is operating an ear irrigator, it still carries the same inherent risk. So at the Microsuction Ear Wax Removal Network, we never irrigate. We will only use microsuction or manual instruments to remove your ear wax blockage.

14 Interesting Facts About Didcot

Why Do We Have Earwax?

Ear wax (medical name cerumen) is made by specialised glands in the outer two thirds of the ear canal. It helps protect the ear by moisturising the skin in the ear canal, providing a physical barrier against infection, and by being acidic it has antibacterial properties. Because it is sticky, it helps to catch dust, pollen and small insects and prevent them from establishing themselves in your ears! The skin in your ear canal grows differently to the skin that covers the rest of our body, and grows along the ear canal from the ear drum to the canal entrance. It acts like a conveyor belt, bringing the ear wax, and any dust, pollen or other debris with it, out of the ear. This way, the ear canal cleans itself naturally.

Why Do Ear Wax Blockages Happen?

Typically, ear wax blocks the ear canal and becomes impacted when it is pushed back against the natural outward movement that is part of the natural cleaning process. This can be done using cotton buds, matchsticks, paper clips, rolled up tissue, hair pins amongst other objects. Other causes of ear wax impaction can be narrow or winding ear canals, excessive, excessively dry or excessively sticky ear wax production. Everybody has an S bend in their ear canals - this is to reduce the chance of twigs and other objects from perforating the ear drum. However, ear wax can build up on very sharp bends in the canal. Where the ear canal is very narrow, there is less space for ear wax to accumulate, and this can lead to frequent ear wax blockages. Excessive, sticky, or dry ear wax production can also lead to impacted ear wax. The most obvious symptom of a blocked ear is a partial or total loss of hearing, but other symptoms can include pain, itching, a feeling of fullness, or hissing, whooshing, buzzing or ringing sounds.BOOK ONLINE NOW!

How To Get Rid Of Ear Wax

Unfortunately, the size and shape of your ear canal, as well as the amount and type of ear wax is genetically determined. In order to reduce ear wax build up we recommend applying one squirt of Earol (a sterile, sealed olive oil spray) into each ear once or twice a week. If you have a blocked ear, we recommend you apply two squirts of Earol twice or three times a day for three or four days and then attend one of our expert microsuction ear wax removal clinics. You can book an appointment at our microsuction ear wax removal clinic near you here. Please don't put cotton wool in after applying Earol, as it will just absorb the olive oil and stop it from doing its work. We don't recommend self-syringing as this can push the ear wax further into your ear. We particularly recommend you avoid ear candles, as these do not remove ear wax and can potentially cause serious problems. We have an article on ear candles and their pitfalls here.If you'd like to read about the various methods of ear wax removal, including syringing and microsuction, we have an article on different ear wax removal methods here.

If You Wear Hearing Aids

If you wear hearing aids, to prevent oil and wax from blocking up your hearing aids just apply the Earol at night, and then wipe out the entrance of your ear canal with a tissue in the morning before you put your hearing aids in. You'll ideally need to use Earol for five to eight days before your microsuction appointment.BOOK ONLINE NOW! SAVE AN EXTRA £10 *

Best Value Ear Wax Microsuction In The UK

So, after reading the above if you have wax in your ear and would like it removed safely without any water being syringed or jetted into your ear, you may want to choose to have your ears microsuctioned.We provide the best value ear wax microsuction service in the UK, provided by HCPC-registered Audiologists and NMC-registered nurses. We take payment for the appointment up front - we are sorry that we have to do this, but many patients have booked and not turned up, which is frustrating for other patients who cannot get an appointment.Our Audiologist will inspect your ears using surgical loupes or an otoscope to determine whether your ear canals are full of wax and if microsuction is therefore necessary.If there is no ear wax, we will give you advice and/or a hearing test as appropriate.If there is wax, we will remove the ear wax expertly using a low power medical suction unit with a tiny, sterile 2 mm suction tube on the end. This is so gentle, it feels like barely even a kiss on the cheek. Sometimes, despite applying Earol for several days, the ear wax is too stubborn to be removed by microsuction, so we may use special disposable instruments, such as a Jobson Horne Probe, or a St Barts or Rosen Cerumen Hook. Whatever method we use, you safety is our top priority at all times. If you would like to book a microsuction ear wax removal appointment, click here.We never use a Propulse Ear Irrigator, which has now largely replaced the ear syringe, as according to the British Medical Journal (article here) irrigation or syringing is associated with a high risk of complications, such as failure of wax removal or further impaction of the wax, ear infection, trauma to the ear canal, or perforation of the ear drum. Other complications of syringing that have been reported are pain, tinnitus, vertigo (dizziness), and loss of balance or hearing.BOOK ONLINE NOW! SAVE AN EXTRA £10 *

12 Interesting Facts About Dorking

  1. Dorking is a market town in Surrey, south east England
  2. Dorking chickens with short five-toed legs are a major local breed. The Dorking is among the oldest British chicken breeds. It has sometimes been suggested that it derives from five-toed chickens brought to Britain by the Romans in the first century AD,[9][10] but it is not known whether the Romans brought poultry with them, nor if they found five-toed poultry when they arrived.[4] The Roman writer Columella, active at that time, mentions five-toed hens as being the best breeding-stock: "they are reckoned the most generous which have five toes".[11
  3. Dorking appears in Domesday Book of 1086 as the Manor of Dorchinges. It was held by William the Conqueror. Its Domesday assets were: one church, three mills worth 15s 4d, 16 ploughs, 3 acres (1.2 ha) of meadowwoodland and herbage for 88 hogs. It rendered £18 per year to its feudal system overlords
  4. A game resembling rugby was once played here. The two sides were unlimited in number, representing the east and west of the town. The goals were the two bridges on the Pipp Brook. The Town Crier kicked off the ball at 2 pm and stopped play at 6 pm. The game was started at the church gates and was "rioted" up and down the High Street. It ceased in 1897 after complaints by tradesmen and it was officially stopped under section 72 of the Highway Act 1835.
  5. A species of fish-eating dinosaurBaryonyx walkeri, was discovered in clay pits just south of Dorking. The creature had a long curved claw on each hand and remains of its last meal were discovered fossilised in its ribcage
  6. Top Gear presenter James May built the world’s first full-size Lego house – including a working toilet, hot shower and a very uncomfortable bed – using 3.3million plastic bricks at Denbies in Dorking.
  7. The most difficult decision of a Friday night - King’s or The Yeoman?
  8. Lidl is such a guilty pleasure for Dorking that even Google Maps marks it as "discount supermarket". We suspect foul play by Sainsbury’s, M&S and Waitrose.
  9.  Charles Dickens wrote much of his "pickwick papers" whilst staying in Dorking at the White Horse and based many of the characters on local people ?
  10.  Denbies, just outside the town on the A24, is the largest Vineyard in England
  11. Dorking is home to the only surviving house of a Mayflower pilgrim. William Mullins left on the ship in 1620.
  12. Abinger Common (5 miles from Dorking) is the oldest village in england with dwellings dating back 7,000 years.

Why Do We Have Earwax?

Ear wax (medical name cerumen) is made by specialised glands in the outer two thirds of the ear canal. It helps protect the ear by moisturising the skin in the ear canal, providing a physical barrier against infection, and by being acidic it has antibacterial properties. Because it is sticky, it helps to catch dust, pollen and small insects and prevent them from establishing themselves in your ears! The skin in your ear canal grows differently to the skin that covers the rest of our body, and grows along the ear canal from the ear drum to the canal entrance. It acts like a conveyor belt, bringing the ear wax, and any dust, pollen or other debris with it, out of the ear. This way, the ear canal cleans itself naturally.

Why Do Ear Wax Blockages Happen?

Typically, ear wax blocks the ear canal and becomes impacted when it is pushed back against the natural outward movement that is part of the natural cleaning process. This can be done using cotton buds, matchsticks, paper clips, rolled up tissue, hair pins amongst other objects. Other causes of ear wax impaction can be narrow or winding ear canals, excessive, excessively dry or excessively sticky ear wax production. Everybody has an S bend in their ear canals - this is to reduce the chance of twigs and other objects from perforating the ear drum. However, ear wax can build up on very sharp bends in the canal. Where the ear canal is very narrow, there is less space for ear wax to accumulate, and this can lead to frequent ear wax blockages. Excessive, sticky, or dry ear wax production can also lead to impacted ear wax. The most obvious symptom of a blocked ear is a partial or total loss of hearing, but other symptoms can include pain, itching, a feeling of fullness, or hissing, whooshing, buzzing or ringing sounds.BOOK ONLINE NOW!

How To Get Rid Of Ear Wax

Unfortunately, the size and shape of your ear canal, as well as the amount and type of ear wax is genetically determined. In order to reduce ear wax build up we recommend applying one squirt of Earol (a sterile, sealed olive oil spray) into each ear once or twice a week. If you have a blocked ear, we recommend you apply two squirts of Earol twice or three times a day for three or four days and then attend one of our expert microsuction ear wax removal clinics. You can book an appointment at our microsuction ear wax removal clinic near you here. Please don't put cotton wool in after applying Earol, as it will just absorb the olive oil and stop it from doing its work. We don't recommend self-syringing as this can push the ear wax further into your ear. We particularly recommend you avoid ear candles, as these do not remove ear wax and can potentially cause serious problems. We have an article on ear candles and their pitfalls here.If you'd like to read about the various methods of ear wax removal, including syringing and microsuction, we have an article on different ear wax removal methods here.

If You Wear Hearing Aids

If you wear hearing aids, to prevent oil and wax from blocking up your hearing aids just apply the Earol at night, and then wipe out the entrance of your ear canal with a tissue in the morning before you put your hearing aids in. You'll ideally need to use Earol for five to eight days before your microsuction appointment.BOOK ONLINE NOW! SAVE AN EXTRA £10 *

Best Value Ear Wax Microsuction In The UK

So, after reading the above if you have wax in your ear and would like it removed safely without any water being syringed or jetted into your ear, you may want to choose to have your ears microsuctioned.We provide the best value ear wax microsuction service in the UK, provided by HCPC-registered Audiologists and NMC-registered nurses. We take payment for the appointment up front - we are sorry that we have to do this, but many patients have booked and not turned up, which is frustrating for other patients who cannot get an appointment.Our Audiologist will inspect your ears using surgical loupes or an otoscope to determine whether your ear canals are full of wax and if microsuction is therefore necessary.If there is no ear wax, we will give you advice and/or a hearing test as appropriate.If there is wax, we will remove the ear wax expertly using a low power medical suction unit with a tiny, sterile 2 mm suction tube on the end. This is so gentle, it feels like barely even a kiss on the cheek. Sometimes, despite applying Earol for several days, the ear wax is too stubborn to be removed by microsuction, so we may use special disposable instruments, such as a Jobson Horne Probe, or a St Barts or Rosen Cerumen Hook. Whatever method we use, you safety is our top priority at all times. If you would like to book a microsuction ear wax removal appointment, click here.We never use a Propulse Ear Irrigator, which has now largely replaced the ear syringe, as according to the British Medical Journal (article here) irrigation or syringing is associated with a high risk of complications, such as failure of wax removal or further impaction of the wax, ear infection, trauma to the ear canal, or perforation of the ear drum. Other complications of syringing that have been reported are pain, tinnitus, vertigo (dizziness), and loss of balance or hearing.BOOK ONLINE NOW! SAVE AN EXTRA £10 *

Microsuction Ear Wax Removal At Our Clinic In Surbiton, a stone's throw from Surbiton station.

DECEMBER 2020: IMPORTANT LOCKDOWN NOTICE

Updated 20th December 2020. As an Audiology Service, the Microsuction Earwax Removal Network is exempt from the requirement to close due to the full lockdown and Tier 1-4 rules and restrictions. This is specified in the most recent legislation The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 PART 3 Businesses permitted to remain open. 47: "Dental services, opticians, audiology services, chiropody, chiropractors, osteopaths and other medical or health services, including services relating to mental health."

In addition, according to the Goverment's advice in Tier 4: Stay at Home - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk), while travel is generally to be avoided, you can travel

  • within a Tier 4 area,
  • from a Tier 4 area to a Tier 1, 2 or 3 area,
  • or from a Tier 1, 2 or 3 area to a Tier 4 area
for the purpose of "visiting hospital, GP and other medical appointments or visits where you have had an accident or are concerned about your health".

See our full announcement at https://www.earwaxremoval.net/4993/news/tier-4-covid-19-update-20th-december-2020/

We take strict measures, including triaging every single patient, checking temperatures, wearing high level PPE, enforcing the wearing of a Type iiR surgical mask (which we will provide if you don't have one), and sanitising surfaces. Due to these measures, our clinic rooms are the safest place you can be whatever Tier level or R rate. Although some people are exempt from wearing face masks when entering a "shop", in the most recent government legislation Audiology Services are exempt from the definition of shop, so everybody must wear a mask, which we will provide, for the protection of others, otherwise treatment cannot be provided. You can find the relevant legislation here. You can find the full legislation here.

What Is Microsuction?

At The Microsuction Network, we NEVER syringe or irrigate!

Simply put, microsuction is the removal of ear wax from the ear canal using illuminating microscopes and gentle medical suction. At our clinics we use ENT-grade suction units and portable convergent microscopes, as well as disposable, sterile suction tips. Microsuction is considered the safest method of ear wax removal, and our training and experience ensure you will have a very safe procedure.

When the ear wax is very tough, or if there is a foreign body in the ear canal, such as a cotton bud tip, or an ear plug which has become stuck, we may use instruments, which are specially designed for removing ear wax and other objects from the ear canal. All of our staff are trained and experienced at using instruments. You may also see instrument removal also called "curettage" or "aural toilet", but we think "instrument removal" sounds nicer.

Why Don't We Irrigate (Syringe)?

Irrigation uses a high pressure water jet to dislodge the wax from your ear. It's like a mini jet wash, and has been known to rupture the ear drum and cause facial paralysis. The electronic ear irrigator has largely replaced the more old fashioned ear syringe, but it still has the same basic problem that it uses a pushing force and can push hardened wax further into your ear. More commonly, if the procedure does not completely remove your wax blockage, wax and water can be trapped in the ear and lead to a painful ear infection.

Microsuction needs a higher level of training than irrigation, a good eye and a steady hand. Some clinics say they do microsuction, but use inferior methods and equipment and when the wax is deep in the ear they give up and irrigate. It does not matter who is operating an ear irrigator, it still carries the same inherent risk. So at the Microsuction Ear Wax Removal Network, we never irrigate. We will only use microsuction or manual instruments to remove your ear wax blockage.

How We Protect You

Throughout every stage of the process, from making the booking right until the end of your appointment, we have implemented procedures that are designed to safeguard your health every step of the way.

Before being able to book, you will need to fill out a triage form that has been designed to make sure that anyone attending an appointment has no symptoms of Covid-19, and does not have a perforated ear drum. Because everybody has to do this, it means that our staff, our patients, but most importantly you will be protected.

Book Microsuction Online Now!

Wearing masks

We are also aware that people who have no symptoms of Covid-19 can be carriers, so everybody who attends an appointment will have to use a non-toxic hand sanitizer and wear a fluid-resistant Type iiR surgical mask on arrival. Our staff will also be wearing a mask, in addition to a disposable apron and disposable gloves. This has been determined by ENT UK and the Infection Prevention Society to be sufficient to prevent the transmission of Covid-19, when the patient does not have a perforated ear drum. Unfortunately, this does mean that those patients with a perforated ear drum will probably have to wait until there is a vaccine for Covid-19, or until we receive different guidance.

Book Microsuction Online Now!

Cleanliness is next to godliness

In between each appointment, we will sanitize surfaces in the treatment room, doff (take off) our used PPE and don (put on) fresh PPE. This is to ensure that the room is safe for you and all of our patients.

No sharing pens or clipboards (or phones or tablets)

Before you attend your appointment, you will need to fill in a consent form online. We used to do this during the appointment, but for your protection it is far safer to avoid sharing mobile phones and tablet computers. Your consent form is protected by several layers of security, and the data is encrypted using 256-bit AES (military grade) encryption. You will receive a link to the consent form in your confirmation and reminder emails after you book online.

A New Way Of Booking

In order to incorporate the newly required triage form and the consent form into the booking process, as well as to provide an even greater level of security, we have completely revamped our booking system. This has been a three year process, but we are sure you will agree that it is worth it. It has been designed to make the whole booking process as seamless and as easy as possible. You simply enter your postcode and click "Find Appointments" and in about 5 seconds a list of all clinic locations and dates and times will be displayed. You can change the maximum distance and the furthest day ahead at the top of the table. Simply choose a date and location and click on the time that you would like to book. The price is displayed below the time. Check that you have selected the right place, date and time and then click "Book Now". You will then be taken to the checkout, where you can enter your details, your credit card, and any discount code (new customers can use the code 5offnew to get a £5 discount off their first booking - it's a new system, so even existing customers count as new customers!). Due to the new infection prevention procedures, our time spent per patient is at least fifty percent greater than before, and the price of PPE has risen sharply since the arrival of Covid-19, so our prices have risen accordingly. We hope the discount code will help a little.

How To Book Your Microsuction Appointment Online

The Microsuction Ear Wax Removal Network is a brand of First Health Ltd, and our sister brand, Hearing First, is providing the infrastructure for the new booking system. You will start by filling in a triage form, and assuming you fulfill the necessary criteria you will then be taken to the booking page. It is currently part of our professional regulations that everybody has to fill in a triage form as part of the booking process, so we can only take online bookings at this present time. The good news is that you can see all of our appointments on the page. If the time you want is not shown, you could try waiting a few hours or perhaps try again the next day in case anybody cancels their appointment.

Please read the instructions at the top of the triage form, as it explains that you will need to bring a mobile phone with you, as we will be calling people in to the clinic one at a time. This is to prevent patients sitting together for a long time or crossing paths. We would respectfully ask you to wait outside the location until we call you on your phone. The easiest way to do this is to drive to the location and wait in your car, if you have one. However, if you must travel by public transport, please wear a mask (or at least some kind of face covering) and do your best to maintain 2 metres (about 6 feet) social distancing from other people.

Even though the government is gradually relaxing the lockdown, we have to bear in mind that Covid-19 is still out there and there isn't yet a vaccine, so please stay safe!

We take strict measures, including triaging every single patient, checking temperatures, wearing high level PPE, enforcing the wearing of a Type iiR surgical mask (which we will provide if you don't have one), and sanitising surfaces. Due to these measures, our clinic rooms are the safest place you can be whatever Tier level or R rate. Although some people are exempt from wearing face masks when entering a "shop", in the most recent government legislation Audiology Services are exempt from the definition of shop, so everybody must wear a mask, which we will provide, for the protection of others, otherwise treatment cannot be provided. You can find the relevant legislation here. You can find the full legislation here.

What Is Microsuction?

At The Microsuction Network, we NEVER syringe or irrigate!

Simply put, microsuction is the removal of ear wax from the ear canal using illuminating microscopes and gentle medical suction. At our clinics we use ENT-grade suction units and portable convergent microscopes, as well as disposable, sterile suction tips. Microsuction is considered the safest method of ear wax removal, and our training and experience ensure you will have a very safe procedure.

When the ear wax is very tough, or if there is a foreign body in the ear canal, such as a cotton bud tip, or an ear plug which has become stuck, we may use instruments, which are specially designed for removing ear wax and other objects from the ear canal. All of our staff are trained and experienced at using instruments. You may also see instrument removal also called "curettage" or "aural toilet", but we think "instrument removal" sounds nicer.

Why Don't We Irrigate (Syringe)?

Irrigation uses a high pressure water jet to dislodge the wax from your ear. It's like a mini jet wash, and has been known to rupture the ear drum and cause facial paralysis. The electronic ear irrigator has largely replaced the more old fashioned ear syringe, but it still has the same basic problem that it uses a pushing force and can push hardened wax further into your ear. More commonly, if the procedure does not completely remove your wax blockage, wax and water can be trapped in the ear and lead to a painful ear infection.

Microsuction needs a higher level of training than irrigation, a good eye and a steady hand. Some clinics say they do microsuction, but use inferior methods and equipment and when the wax is deep in the ear they give up and irrigate. It does not matter who is operating an ear irrigator, it still carries the same inherent risk. So at the Microsuction Ear Wax Removal Network, we never irrigate. We will only use microsuction or manual instruments to remove your ear wax blockage.

Interesting Facts About Horley

Barnet is both the name of both the town and the London borough. Within the borough of Barnet, you can also find Arkley, Hadley, Barnet Gate, Mill Hill, Brent Cross, Church End, Friern Barnet, Whetstone, Osidge, Hendon, Finchley, Golders Green and Edgware. Barnet is itself split into High Barnet, Chipping Barnet, East Barnet and New Barnet. We also have ear wax removal clinics in Edgware, Golders Green and East Finchley, making Barnet one of the best served places for ear wax removal.

Barnet is twinned with nine cities around the globe, including Jinja in Uganda, Barnet in Vermont, and Tempelhof-Schöneberg, in Berlin..

It is a widely held belief that none other than Charles Dickens used to enjoy the occasional drink at the Red Lion public house, which you can find on Barnet Hill, not far from our clinic.

Being familiar with the area, in the novel Oliver Twist, the main character met future villain The Artful Dodger on Barnet High Street.

The England 1966 Football World Cup winning team spent the evening before the big day watching ‘Those magnificent men in those flying machines’ at Hendon cinema.

"Barnet", the cockney rhyming slang for "hair" (in full "Barnet Fair"), refers to an annual horse and pleasure fair held near Mays Lane in Barnet, on the first Monday in September. The Fair still takes place over three days and operates under its royal Charter which is issued by Barnet Council. The focus in the present-day Fair is no longer on horses but rather fairground rides. The fair began in 1588 when Queen Elizabeth I granted a charter to the Lord of the Manor of Barnet to hold a fair twice yearly, in addition to the weekly Barnet Market. In 1834, The Times reported that Barnet Fair was England's largest cattle market, with up to 40,000 animals on display.

The site of High Barnet London Underground station used to be where horse races were held during Barnet Fair, from the eighteenth century until 1870 when the station was built.

Back in the 12th century High Barnet was founded by monks from St Albans Abbey. In those days they called the place "Bernet".

Why Do We Have Earwax?

Ear wax (medical name cerumen) is made by specialised glands in the outer two thirds of the ear canal. It helps protect the ear by moisturising the skin in the ear canal, providing a physical barrier against infection, and by being acidic it has antibacterial properties. Because it is sticky, it helps to catch dust, pollen and small insects and prevent them from establishing themselves in your ears! The skin in your ear canal grows differently to the skin that covers the rest of our body, and grows along the ear canal from the ear drum to the canal entrance. It acts like a conveyor belt, bringing the ear wax, and any dust, pollen or other debris with it, out of the ear. This way, the ear canal cleans itself naturally.

Why Do Ear Wax Blockages Happen?

Typically, ear wax blocks the ear canal and becomes impacted when it is pushed back against the natural outward movement that is part of the natural cleaning process. This can be done using cotton buds, matchsticks, paper clips, rolled up tissue, hair pins amongst other objects. Other causes of ear wax impaction can be narrow or winding ear canals, excessive, excessively dry or excessively sticky ear wax production. Everybody has an S bend in their ear canals - this is to reduce the chance of twigs and other objects from perforating the ear drum. However, ear wax can build up on very sharp bends in the canal. Where the ear canal is very narrow, there is less space for ear wax to accumulate, and this can lead to frequent ear wax blockages. Excessive, sticky, or dry ear wax production can also lead to impacted ear wax. The most obvious symptom of a blocked ear is a partial or total loss of hearing, but other symptoms can include pain, itching, a feeling of fullness, or hissing, whooshing, buzzing or ringing sounds.

How To Get Rid Of Ear Wax

Unfortunately, the size and shape of your ear canal, as well as the amount and type of ear wax is genetically determined. In order to reduce ear wax build up we recommend applying one squirt of Earol (a sterile, sealed olive oil spray) into each ear once or twice a week. If you have a blocked ear, we recommend you apply two squirts of Earol twice or three times a day for three or four days and then attend one of our expert microsuction ear wax removal clinics. You can book an appointment at our Horley microsuction ear wax removal clinic here. Please don't put cotton wool in after applying Earol, as it will just absorb the olive oil and stop it from doing its work. We don't recommend self-syringing as this can push the ear wax further into your ear. We particularly recommend you avoid ear candles, as these do not remove ear wax and can potentially cause serious problems. We have an article on ear candles and their pitfalls here.

If you'd like to read about the various methods of ear wax removal, including syringing and microsuction, we have an article on different ear wax removal methods here.

If You Wear Hearing Aids

If you wear hearing aids, to prevent oil and wax from blocking up your hearing aids just apply the Earol at night, and then wipe out the entrance of your ear canal with a tissue in the morning before you put your hearing aids in. You'll ideally need to use Earol for five to eight days before your microsuction appointment.

Ear Wax Microsuction In Horley From £40

So, after reading the above if you have wax in your ear and would like it removed safely without any water being syringed or jetted into your ear, you may want to choose to have your ears microsuctioned.

We provide the most affordable ear wax microsuction service in Bernet, provided by HCPC-registered Audiologists and NMC-registered nurses. We take payment for the appointment up front - we are sorry that we have to do this, but many patients have booked and not turned up, which is frustrating for other patients who cannot get an appointment.

Our Audiologist will inspect your ears using surgical loupes or an otoscope to determine whether your ear canals are full of wax and if microsuction is therefore necessary.

If there is no ear wax, we will give you advice and/or a hearing test as appropriate.

If there is wax, we will remove the ear wax expertly using a low power medical suction unit with a tiny, sterile 2 mm suction tube on the end. This is so gentle, it feels like barely even a kiss on the cheek. Sometimes, despite applying Earol for several days, the ear wax is too stubborn to be removed by microsuction, so we may use special disposable instruments, such as a Jobson Horne Probe, or a St Barts or Rosen Cerumen Hook. Whatever method we use, you safety is our top priority at all times. If you would like to book a microsuction appointment in Horley, click here.

We never use a Propulse Ear Irrigator, which has now largely replaced the ear syringe, as according to the British Medical Journal (article here) irrigation or syringing is associated with a high risk of complications, such as failure of wax removal or further impaction of the wax, ear infection, trauma to the ear canal, or perforation of the ear drum. Other complications of syringing that have been reported are pain, tinnitus, vertigo (dizziness), and loss of balance or hearing.
