Hidden Hearing launches earwax removal clinic in Tullamore

Hidden Hearing, Ireland's leading hearing healthcare specialists, are thrilled to announce the opening of their new ear wax service in Tullamore, and to mark the occasion, they're offering free ear wax removal throughout April and May this year.

Normally valued at €70, this service will be provided free of charge to individuals over the age of 55. Appointments are available exclusively by appointment, and bookings can be made by calling 1800 98 98 48 or visit www.hiddenhearing.ie/ear-wax-removal-service to take advantage of this limited time offer.

Hidden Hearing offers the latest in Wax irrigation and micro suction services, with local Ear wax Technician, Barry Humphreys, available at the Hidden Hearing Clinic in the Edgewater Medical, Grand Canal House, Colmcille Street, Tullamore, ready to address all your ear wax needs.

Symptoms of hard or impacted earwax can include sudden or partial hearing loss, tinnitus, a feeling of fullness in the ear, or earache. It is also difficult to perform a proper hearing test when there is a build-up of earwax.

Both manual wax irrigation or micro-suction are pain-free procedures, completed in minutes, according to Hidden Hearing’s audiologist and Marketing Director, Dolores Madden. Micro-suction is a safe and quick method of ear wax removal, also used to remove foreign bodies from the ear canal, the hearing specialist says.

"This simple and effective treatment uses a medical suction device and a microscope to see directly into the ear canal, and no liquids are needed at all."

Wax acts as a self-cleaning service for ears, protecting the sensitive ear canal from things like bacteria and debris that can cause infection.

"Never put anything in your ear, and, if you are bothered by the feeling of a blockage, just talk to a hearing specialist," advises the Hidden Hearing audiologist.

Apart from damaging the sensitive inner ear, cotton buds, fingertips or hair grips can cause impacted wax, as can regular use of bud earphones, earplugs and even hearing aids, it seems.

Singer Daniel O’Donnell supports the new Hidden Hearing campaign that aims to educate the public on the importance of taking care of their hearing, just as they would look after their teeth, eyesight, blood pressure or cholesterol.

Heart health, dementia, diabetes, and other serious illnesses have been linked to hearing loss. Treatment, including the use of hearing aids, can be a preventative factor, protecting against the progression of certain diseases, particularly in older adults.
