Am I at risk of blepharitis?

The risk of blepharitis increases as a patient ages.  A study by Walter Reed Hospital determined that incidences of blepharitis in the U.S. steadily increase from 3% of 18-20 year olds to a staggering 71% of those over 65.  That equates to more than 40 million individuals in the 65+ age group with the total number of patients with blepharitis in the U.S. alone is over 82 million people.

Is BlephEx treatment® covered by insurance?
