This handheld device allows him to check the condition of your ear canal and eardrum.He will check for any medical conditions that may be causing any hearing loss and will advise on this, referring to ENT specialists if required. He will also check for any ear wax build up. Ear wax can build up and be compacted by using cotton buds etc and this may cause changes in hearing. If required, Discretion Hearing Ltd Southport offer an earwax removal service using the latest microsuction techniques
