Our Eyebrows and Eyelashes


Our brows and lashes are not just for showing expression or flirting. They have an important job to do – protecting our eyes. 




Our eyebrows have a larger purpose than just communicating emotion. They channel sweat, rain, and moisture away from our eyeballs. The shape of them direct these potential hazards towards the outside of our face keeping our eyes clean and clear. This allows us to see better when we are sweating from an intense workout, hot day or in bad weather. They also deflect debris and shield our eyes from the sun. So, next time you think about waxing or plucking your eyebrows, consider the eyebrows as a safeguard. Do not pluck them too thin! They will lose their ability to do their job. 




Even more important to the safety of our eyes, eyelashes keep dust, dirt and other airborne debris our of our eyeballs. When we close our eyes, the lashes form a barrier that prevents harmful fragments from entering our eyes. Also, armed with a sensitive reflex, when anything touches our eyelashes, the natural response is to blink so a foreign object is prevented from entering the eye. 


It is possible for our eyelashes to become infected, ingrown or inflamed. If you have any concerns about your eyebrows and eyelashes, see doctors Kaufman, Wright, Brown or Graham for a diagnosis.
