Missing Eyelashes

Recently, I woke up one morning to find a huge gap of eyelashes gone from my right eyelid! It never hurt and I am always careful when removing my makeup so I don't think that I "rubbed" them away. But now my other eyelid is starting to lose the lashes or they are somewhat shorter. This is awful since I am already self conscious about my looks. Do you have any suggestions on how to make them grow back?

Most of all don't pull at them, pick make-up off or use lash curlers. Read the postings using the search feature on blepharitis.  Have a medical eye exam with an Eye MD ophthalmologist-physician to see if you have this lid infection problem.
