In brief: Eyelashes falling

You can consult a dermatologist or ophthalmologist.
Nowadays there are eye drops of ciclosporine that may help. Review the things you put near your eyelashes (mascara, eyeliners). Review your medicines your creams to clean your make up. Check if you lose hair in other parts.
