Glue Ear – Grommets

Some people get fluid behind the eardrum which can cause recurrent infections. This is sometimes called ‘glue ear’. It is very common in young children, but can happen in adults too. We don’t know exactly what causes glue ear but if it is creates problems with poor hearing, poor speech or lots of infections, it may be better to insert grommets.

Grommets are very small plastic tubes, which sit in a hole in the eardrum, allowing air to flow in and out of the ear. Grommets usually fall out by themselves as the eardrum grows however they may stay in for six months, or a year, or sometimes even longer.
