Here are some commonly asked questions about HearWell services
along with some general information on Hearing.
My hearing feels muffled, is it earwax?
Earwax in the ear is normal and fights off infection. It only affects your hearing if the build-up becomes excessive so removal of earwax may restore the hearing. Contact hearWell and we can check this for you.
Do I need hearing aids?
The simple answer is until you have a hearing check nobody knows. Sometimes the solution to a hearing problem is not always hearing aids but simply the removal of earwax. With HearWell a hearing check including earwax is free of charge.

People rarely notice themselves & do not want to admit they have a hearing loss at any age as the perception is it is an age-related issue, but it’s not. People of all ages can acquire a hearing loss and it is important to find out irrespective if they decide to wear hearing aids in the future.

Do you have signs of earwax build up?
Which procedure is best?
Before commencing with any procedure we discuss if you have any medical or physical reasons which direct us to the appropriate procedure, micro-suction, irrigation or instrumentation. Sometimes we will use a combination of procedures to remove the earwax.
Does earwax removal hurt?
None of the procedures hurt and sometimes people actually enjoy the removal as the ear canal is an area which is hardly ever touched and some people say it tickles!
