Is it possible for your eyelashes to go into and behind your eyeballs?

Is it possible for your eyelashes to go into and behind your eyeballs?

NO: Foreign bodies could potentially penetrate into the eyeball but that requires signficant trauma, not something an eyelash is capable of.

Been 2 two different eye docs. Both says allergies but red lines on eyes since July. Eye pain behind eyelid comes and goes. Now seeing eyelashes. Why?

Blepharitis?: Inflammation of inner lining of eyelids can cause irritation of the eyeball, leading to redness. It can also cause the eyelashes to be redirected toward the eye so that they enter the field of vision. Your symptoms are suggestive of blepharitis. You should ask about this. Make sure you see an ophthalmologist (someone who treats eye disease), not just an optometrist (who just prescribes lenses). ...Read more

I have had a headach four 7 days on my left side of my head right behind my eye. It starts right when I wack up and it gets hurting more every hour in tell I take 4 Advil and lay down and put ice on it for hours and then that does not work all the time.

I have had a headach four 7 days on my left side of my head right behind my eye. It starts right when I wack up and it gets hurting more every hour in tell I take 4 Advil and lay down and put ice on it for hours and then that does not work all the time.

First: First of all vodka and advil (ibuprofen) is a dangerous combination. This could adversely affect your liver and could cause liver damage and possibly failure which could be lethal. The maximum amount of advil (ibuprofen) is 3200mg/day and no more than 800mg every 6 hours. An over the counter advil (ibuprofen) tab is 200mg. As far as your headache goes, if it has been present for 7 days then this definitely warrants a medical evaluation. It sounds like a cluster headache. Your doctor will be able to tell you what their diagnosis is after a complete evaluation and give you appropriate treatment.
Best of luck. ...Read more
