Summer is finally here and now is a good opportunity to check that your ears and your hearing are in tip-top condition for the coming months, especially if you are going on holiday either at home or abroad. Here a few things to consider:
Microsuction for earwax removal.
If you struggle with excess earwax, make an appointment now with Dr Carling for microsuction for the week before you go on holiday, so that you can enjoy your break without the problems that earwax can cause. Call us on 01732 525912 to book this.
Swim plugs and other custom devices.
If you or your family are likely to be spending a lot of time in the water over the coming months, then custom fitted swim plugs can help reduce the risk of unpleasant ear infections caused by water getting trapped in the ear canal. We can also provide custom sleep plugs and other noise reducing devices to help protect your hearing in noisy environments this summer for example in nightclubs and bars or at concerts or festivals. Call us on 01732 525912 for more information
Hearing aid batteries, filters and maintenance.
If you are going on holiday over the coming months, please make sure that you have enough hearing aid batteries (if needed) and filters to take with you so that you can enjoy your time away to the full. And for those with rechargeable hearing aids, don’t forget your adapter! If you are concerned in any way about your hearing aids, please give us a call to discuss.
We hope you have a lovely summer and look forward to seeing you soon.
