Distichiasis
Extra eyelashes appearing on the eyelid margin where they would not ordinarily grow is called distichiasis. These eyelashes are very fine and hard to notice. They often cause excessive tearing and cornea problems. Because the hair follicles are set very deep, pulling the hairs out will not solve the problem. Cryo-therapy or surgery are recommended to permanently destroy the eyelashes.
