Health Tip of the Month

Ear Syringing Preparation

What is the treatment?

Wax can be removed by syringing but first must be softened. Use olive oil from a dropper, which can be bought at a chemist. It does not need to be heated, use at room temperature.

When is syringing not suitable?

  • if you have had a hole in your eardrum
  • any ear surgery
  • any problem with ear syringing in the past
  • any current ear pain
  • any ear infection

How to use olive oil:

Lying down with head to one side, pull the ear upward and backwards to straighten the ear canal. Drop 4 drops of olive oil into the ear canal. You may need someone to help with this. Wait for 10 minutes to allow for absorption of the oil and wipe away excess oil when you sit up.

Repeat this treatment in the other ear if necessary. Drops should be used twice a day for 1-2 weeks.

If you have not used the oil as recommended, the wax may not soften and you may need to come back another time to the surgery

Meet the Team

The Carlton Clinic was established by Dr John McManus, who began practicing in Bray in 1975. In 1977 he was joined by Dr Tony O’Brien, and in the same year the doctors moved to the current site of the Carlton Clinic, on Novara Avenue.

The Practice is now a seven doctor partnership, including: Dr. John McManus, Dr. Geraldine Holland, Dr. Eimear O’Hanlon, Dr Melanie Piercy, Dr Mairead Cassidy, Dr. Eoin Spillane and Dr. David Coffey. Dr Dara Owens and Dr Lisa Devine joined the practice in 2016 as GP Assistants. Dr Carly Flynn recently joined the practice as a further GP Assistant.

Our nursing team is made up of Geralyn Power, Sinead Fagan, Karen Rand and Fiona Fisher.

To support the clinical teams, the practice employs a fantastic team of 16 administration and domestic staff.
