In brief: Eyelashes

Eyelashes can curl mildly or more significantly.
There is nothing specific about health conditions that will affect this. Your upper eyelid lashes can curl downward due to eyelid aging changes. The main issue with lashes can occur when the lashes grow toward the eye. Then they can rub up against the eye and cause a lot of irritation. This is called trichiasis.
