Lashes thinning as you get older? Is that normal? Is it reversible?

In brief: Usually

With age, the hair on the body tends to thin and that is true of eyelashes as well.
At your age, significant loss would be premature and you might see your ophthalmologist for this. For instance thyroid disease can thin the eyelashes. Reversibility depends upon the cause so first you need a diagnosis.
