I took my 9yo son to see Julie to remove a build up of wax in one of his ears. He had issues with his ears (especially after swimming) for years, and as a result, he was very uncomfortable with the idea of anything or anyone going near them. He could not have made it much more difficult for Julie than he did - wriggling and squirming and getting upset, but Julie was incredibly patient. It was only Julie’s kind temperament and wealth of experience which allowed us to get the treatment finished and avoid the whole process being too traumatic for my little lad. He and I are both incredibly grateful we found Julie and we could not recommend her highly enough.read more

Saw Julie for ear wax removal but was difficult due to a recent ear infection. She was very caring and arranged for me to return when my ear was better. Some time later I returned and my ear was clear, but Julie had managed to remove most of the wax on the first visit. She is a lovely lady and we had some amazing chats. Many thanks Julie. I will return should the need arise.read more

Brilliant!If you suffer from ear wax build up, then you'll know the usual scenario - slowly your hearing deteriorates and you start to enter your own private world, isolated from everyone else. So you ring the doctors to organise an ear syringe and (if your doctors surgery is as busy as mine) they say 'sorry, the nurse can't do it for 2 weeks' and you end up putting oil in one ear for all that time, pretty much removing what final hearing you had left, so you go completely deaf on one side. Then you get your one ear syringed and if you're lucky all the wax comes out, but if it doesn't, you have to book a second appointment. Then, once you get one ear sorted, all you have to do is repeat the whole process again for the other ear! For me, the overall result is that, on average, every 10 months or, so I lose my hearing in one ear or the other for a complete month.Well, not any more! One simple trip to Interhearing (sometimes with SAME DAY appointments available) and I am good to go. John is superb - very diligent / thorough and the process itself isn't painful (just quite loud sucking noises, because it's close to your eardrum). Twenty minutes or so and I have perfect hearing again in both ears. John then books you in for a second appointment a week or so later (all within the standard charge) to check that everything has settled down OK.No waiting, no oiling, no hassle. Absolutely superb - the best £65 I've spent in a long time!read more

The whole experience was very positive from making contact to the completion of the treatment. The office staff were friendly and efficient, there was a change of venue and they made absolutely sure I was aware of it. The consultant gave me a full explanation including showing me photos. He completed the treatment sensitively showing me pictures of the result and followed up with further advice. It was a relief to be able to hear again!read more

I was seen promptly by a gentleman who examined me very thoroughly and not only removed the wax from my ears, but also removed some of the hair which was aggravating the situation. he was polite, kind and eager to listen to any comments I was making. the experience was pleasant and satisfying. PS. I do not understand why my name appears as Richard Kaye. This is my son's name, but he lives Japan! My name is Kyriacos Kayeread more

Ear Wax Removal - Interhearing

We have minimal wait times and no GP referral is needed. 

The Microscution Procedure

Quick and Safe Microsuction Ear Wax Cleaning, Performed by NHS experienced ear wax removal professionals. No need for weeks of ear drops before treatment.

The microsuction technique uses gentle suction to clean the ear. It is much safer and more comfortable than all other forms of ear cleaning, including syringing and irrigation. There is no need to use ear drops for weeks before microsuction treatment. The only times you will need to take drops is the night before and morning of procedure. A small, thin probe is directed at the ear wax in the ear canal, and then gentle suction is applied to slowly remove the ear blockage.

Free Follow up appointment

On rare occasions, we may be unable to fully remove wax blockages during your first appointment and offer free of charge follow ups until your treatment is complete.

Microsuction Ear Wax Removal - Interhearing

Why is Ear Wax a Problem?

Ear wax can cause discomfort, dizziness, pain and hearing loss. Removal of ear wax alleviates these issues and brings a greater feeling of wellbeing.

Removal of wax is especially important for users of Hearing aids as the earpiece often blocks the natural migration of wax out of the ear and the build up of wax causes the hearing aid to begin to be ineffective.

When there is a problem with one ear then the other isn’t far behind. So to keep things simple whether one or both ears need wax removing, we charge the one standard fee of £65

What is the Microsuction Process?

Safe, Comfortable, Instant and Affordable Ear Wax Removal in Reading

When it come to earwax removal cotton buds just makes things worse and syringing can cause severe discomfort and other side effects such as infections and vertigo.

If you want to get the wax out, the safest and most comfortable way to do it is by microsuction. Unlike syringing an ear to remove the wax, with microsuction there is no need to wait until the ear is totally blocked with wax and and you won’t need to use ear drops.

Microsuction brings instant relief from the inconvenience and discomfort of blocked ears. Interhearing are the first to offer ear wax removal by micro-suction in clinics across Reading, Cheshire, the West Midlands and Mid-Wales.

Benefits of micro-suction:

  • Can be used for those with syringing contraindications (i.e. patients with a history of perforations, infections, ear operations etc.)
  • Unlike syringing, ear wax can be removed even if the eardrum is still visible and not fully blocked by wax
  • Significantly lower risk of perforation and infection
  • Not necessary to use ear drops prior to wax removal
  • Commonly used when syringing has not been successful
  • No long waiting list
  • Speeds up Audiological referrals for patients requiring hearing aids
