Eye lash growth serum and under eye cream

Postby Baz781 » Mon 07 Aug 2017 8:47 pm

Hi I've just joined the forum so im new here, diagnosed with keratoconus at age 13. Im 20 years old now i wanted to ask a few questions i am male and my eye lashes on bottom lids are extremely weak and most of them have fallen out would it be safe to use eye lash serum? Also are their any eye creams yo use as my under eyes are extremely dry and my eyes lids aswell thanks.

Interesting since having a corneal transplant the eye lashes top and bottom have returned but in my other eye with KC there are no lashes.

You may find this of interest. I have always believed there is a connecion with dry eye and KC. Dry eye>>>eye rubbing>>>>>KC -

Baz - I'd be a bit wary of using eyelash serum. When I googled side effects of this, one thing mentioned was 'red and itchy eyes'. Obviously not everyone would get this side effect, but it's not one we need! Plus there seemed to be some other worries expressed about the safety of some of the serums - I don't know how valid these are.
