Billed as ďThe ultimate ear protection for all agesĒ, Docís Proplugs are a product that actually lives up to its hype. These earplugs are so effective that they are even doctor recommended. Their prototype was actually designed by a physician and surfing enthusiast back in 1977.
Avoid Swimmerís Ear Altogether
If you or your child has ever suffered from swimmerís ear, you are well aware of how annoying and painful the bothersome infection can be. Swimmerís ear occurs when water enters the external ear and cannot dry properly. Even clean swimming pool water can harbor microscopic bacteria, and this bacteria thrives in the dark and damp environment that wet ears produce. While a single swimmerís ear infection is typically innocuous, chronic infections can thicken the inside of the ear and cause the canal to narrow. If left untreated, this can eventually lead to hearing loss. To avoid the infection all together, use Docís Proplugs to help keep any and all water out. For truly chronic swimmerís ear infections, pair a set of the earplugs with additional protection. Aqua Earbands, which help to further block water from entering the ear canal, and Mackís Dry-N-Clear drops, which help relieve the discomfort of water-clogged ears, are great additions to your ear protection collection.
Ideal for Swimming, Diving, Surfing, SnorkelingÖ
The Proplugs can easily go with you to the pool, beach, lake and anywhere in between. They help prevent surferís ear, swimmerís ear, and ruptured eardrums. One of the best things about the Docís earplugs is that they are available in both vented and non-vented styles. Vented earplugs serve to release pressure from the head, allowing divers to properly equalize. Any diver knows how frustrating it can be to get ears to clear when submerging. The plugs unique design makes equalizing as easy and pain-free as possible.
No fuss or muss!
One of the best things about Docís is that there is no messy sticky putty to potentially get lost in the ear canal. These one-piece plugs are different from the other earplugs on the market. Unlike silicone designs, Docís Proplugs will not irritate the ear canal or disrupt the natural earwax production. Earwax is vital for your body to produce and helps keep foreign microorganisms at bay. Because they are so easy to use, your entire family will love using Docís. Pick up a Docís Proplugs Combo Pack that includes 4 pairs of Proplugs. Combo pack sizes are Child (Tiny, X-small, M-small and Small sizes), Youth (M-small, Small, Medium, and Large sizes), and Adult (Small, Medium, Large and X-large sizes). If you are already familiar with Mackís AquaBlock Earplugs, then you will really love Docís. Mackís pre-molded flanged silicone earplugs are also doctor recommended to help seal water out, although Docís keep the ear canal as healthy and unobstructed as possible.

8 Sizes: Tiny, XS, Medium Small, Small, Medium, Large, XL, XXL
Doc's Proplugs Combo Packs are designed to fit a range of sizes. We guarantee one of our preformed sizes will fit your age range. Each combo pack contains four (4) pairs of Proplugs (one for each size of the set): Doc's Ear Proplugs help control Otitis externa, (swimmers ear) which is an infection of the external ear from bacterial or fungi growth in the ear canal. This is caused by small drops of water that gets trapped within the canal and encourages bacteria to proliferate. As a result of frequent exposure, the skin thickens inside the ear and makes the canal narrower which can cause in eventual hearing loss. Unlike silicon earplugs or earplugs that penetrate the canal, Docís Proplugs will not irritate the ear canal or disrupt earwax production, which is natureís protection from foreign microorganisms. Proper use of Docís Proplugs prevents the flushing out of natural earwax which keeps the ear moisturized and protected.
