Audiology experts in Aberdeen are now offering ear wax removal as part of their dedicated hear care services in-store.

Specsavers Audiologists in Aberdeen are fully trained to professionally remove excess ear wax which may be causing discomfort or difficulty hearing.

A word from our hearcare manager

Gillian MacDonald hearcare manager at Specsavers Audiologists for Aberdeen said: ‘Amazingly our ears biologically self-clean and ear wax helps to maintain the health of our ears.

But problems can arise when items, such as cotton buds or ear plugs, are inserted into the ear. This interferes with the ear’s natural cleaning process and pushes wax and debris further into the ear, which can cause build-up or a blockage of the ear canal.

‘Wax build-up also makes it very difficult to perform accurate hearing tests, so this new service means customers can have everything managed at the same time.

Signs and symptoms

‘If you notice any of the symptoms of impacted wax, including sudden or partial hearing loss, tinnitus, a feeling of fullness in the ear or earache, then we advise you to visit one of our audiologists in store who can help resolve the issue.

'At Specsavers we also recommend that anyone over the age of 55 has a hearing test every year as part of a regular health care routine.’

The Specsavers Hearing Check App is also free to download on the App and Play store on iOS or Android devices, and advises whether a full check in store is recommended.

The ear wax removal service will come as part of a dedicated, monthly clinic in store and will be charged at a cost of £35.00.
