Can I get my ears syringed with Specsavers? Can you fly with a lot of earwax?

Answer: 

Specsavers offer a professional earwax removal service by our trained audiologists. You can book your appointment here.

We do not advise attempting any ear cleaning method at home as this can make the situation worse. For advice on using ear cleaning drops, consult your local pharmacist and for more information on earwax, visit our hub.

There is no evidence to suggest that ear wax affects flying unless the ears are completely occluded (blocked up) so that pressure equalization between the outer and middle ears cannot take place.
