Vitamin E: If it is not bothering the eye, it is probably not a problem. Vitamin e is not effective for lash growth though. Try using Latisse (bimatoprost) from an eye doctor.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

better yet get generic latanoprost or prescription lumigan an apply with brush to lower lid margins at night and you'll have lashes galore. however, you can turn light irides darker in 4% of those who do this and the darkening of your iris color will be irreversible.
