In brief: Soak in shower, bath

Dried crust on eyelashes comes off more easily when it is wet.
One can stay in a bath for a while, to soak the crust. Then, with eyes closed, gently wipe with a soaked washcloth. An eye doctor or the drugstore may have pre-moistened eyelash cleaning towelettes for sale.
