Eyelashes are the short hairs that grow along the edge of our eyelids. They protect our eyes from dust. They also sense things that come close to the eye and they cause us to blink to keep our eyes safe.
Eyelashes can be affected by blepharitis, trichiasis, styes, other conditions, and certain medications and cosmetic procedures.
Eyelashes perform important functions for your eyes. They may even be the perfect length to protect eyes from wind to preserve the eye’s tear film and help prevent dry eye. That is why it is important to take care of your lashes and watch for damage.
