How to Remove Earwax

Having earwax in our ears is completely natural. Earwax has anti-biotic properties and also helps keep foreign objects from entering our ears. We all need some earwax! Usually the ear is self-cleaning but sometimes wax builds up and needs to be removed. 

It’s important to not use cotton buds or any other object to remove the wax. By using such small objects in your ear, you can risk damage to the ear and/or further impacting the wax. At Eastern Audiology we specialise in ear wax removal Melbourne to expertly and safety perform ear was removal.

Can I buy a hearing aid without a test?

A hearing test can provide an Audiologist with a lot of information. It can determine if a hearing loss is present, and if so, the type and degree, and the possible cause. A hearing test also provides information as to which sounds you are not hearing and varies from person to person. Hearing aids are programmed based on your hearing loss, so one type of hearing aid will not suit everyone. A hearing test can also indicate the need for further medical management.

At Eastern Audiology, our Audiologists will perform a thorough hearing test, discuss these results with you, and work with you to determine the best option for your communication needs. This may include hearing aids.
