We utilize a Digital Video Otoscope to make sure that there are no wax issues, or physical damage to the ear. You will see a large and clear view inside your ear canal and ear drum on a color monitor. Your hearing loss could be simply caused by ear wax build-up. Through this exam, we can also determine if there might be a middle ear infection. Any time we find a potential problem, we refer our patients for appropriate medical care. Our patients find this exam very interesting, and it's included in your evaluation.
