Our nurses at Glynde are qualified to perform ear micro-suctioning

How micro-suction ear cleaning works

Micro-suction is a gentle, professional, water free way to remove earwax, dry skin or infection.

This is the same method used by Ear, Nose & Throat specialist doctors, without the need for a referral.

Here’s how it works:


A small metal funnel is placed gently in your ear canal. The nurse practitioner uses this with binocular glasses fitted with a bright light or a microscope to see your ear canal up close.​


Ear suction may be used to remove earwax or objects from the ear canal. The nurse practitioner can see into the ear at all times making the treatment safe and effective.


Ear suction is carried out with a small sucker attached to a low-pressure machine that works like a gentle vacuum cleaner. The nurse practitioner may also use fine instruments (like tiny scoops) to help remove wax.
