Taking care of your hearing is vital! We all want to live life to the fullest and that is why good ear & hearing health is important to people of all ages. There are many factors that can affect our ear health including age, the misuse of ear buds, constant exposure to very loud noises and of course the build up of wax. If our ear health is compromised then our ability to hear deteriorates, this often causes people to be socially withdrawn. If you are concerned about your hearing health or you are looking for ear wax removal in Tredegar and Caerphilly then please contact us, we can help.
In the United Kingdom it is estimated that around 3.9% of the population require management of ear health each year with many people having to wait 12 to 16 weeks to get treatment. These statistics are astonishing and due to the lack of treatment availability with the NHS many people simply go on living their lives with this condition, unaware that they can get treated at their local pharmacy. Here at Nelsons Pharmacy we want to help our customers with conditions such as this and that is why we have partnered up with TympaHealth to provide easy and accessible Ear Health services.
Thanks to modern technology, TympaHealth treatments and procedures can help to quickly diagnose ear & hearing conditions. Infections as well as excessive & compacted wax can be identified & treated quickly & painlessly.
Each appointment will take roughly 30 minutes. One of our highly trained clinicians will carry out the test. Once they have removed some wax the hearing screening will be performed. During the examination, high definition images and videos will be taken. This will identify any hearing issues and whether or not you may require further treatment from specialist doctors. In most cases however, the initial problem is simply the presence of excessive wax. If this is the case, a fast & painless microsuction procedure can be performed to clear the ear of any debris or built up wax. This procedure could immediately improve hearing capabilities.
Ear Microsuction is the safest and most effective way to remove earwax. It works by inserting a low pressure suction probe into the ear. The probe will be controlled by one of our trained clinicians who will be wearing a microscope that will allow them to look clearly into the ear canal to remove the wax.
This procedure is painless and does not involve water being squirted into your ear canal like syringing does. It is a simple and clean procedure.
There will be a free follow up/aftercare appointment if necessary, this will determine if you needs to come back on a 3 or 6 monthly interval.
