In brief: Yes

Yes they can, and it's not much fun.
When psoriasis affects the eyelids, scales may cover lashes. The edges of the eyelids may become red and crusty. If inflamed for long periods, the rims of the lids may turn up or down. If the rim turns down, lashes can rub against the eyeball and cause irritation.A special steroid medication made for use around the eyes may be used to treat scaling.
