eyelash inside eye

I have an eyelash growing inside my eye right next to my eyeball. Not from the corner inward actually right next to the eyeball ....why?

Without an exam it is hard to say, but sometimes patients will have distichiasis (in essence, a second row of lashes), or misplaced lashes can be associated with dermoid cysts in the upper-outer corner of the eye.  I would recommend that you see an ophthalmologist for diagnosis.
