Eye Lashes Fell Out After Using Mascara...
I purchased a mascara on 12/24 and I applied the mascara on my top eye lashes only on 12/24 and 12/25. On 12/26, my eyelashes from the inner corner to mid lid were GONE and continued to fall out in clumps.
I went to an ophthalmologist and he confirmed it was a chemical reaction to the mascara. He referred me to a dermatologist to see if they can tell if the follicles were burned, if so they will never grow back.
This has been VERY traumatizing for me! I'm wondering if I deserve any compensation for this? Especially if my eye lashes will never grow back!

ANSWER for "Eye Lashes Fell Out After Using Mascara...":
Rebecca (Phoenix, Arizona):
Certainly if your dermatologist's prognosis is that your eyelashes will never grow back you have an excellent personal injury claim. If your prognosis is your eyelashes will eventually grow back you will still have a claim for your medical bills and out of pocket expenses, like prescription and over the counter medications.
You will also have a valid claim for any wages lost during your doctors' visits, and a reasonable amount for the trauma (mental anguish) you suffered.
It's important to be thoroughly checked and treated before going further. You must be sure there won't be any lingering effects. Be especially sure your eyesight will not be damaged, nor will you have any permanent scarring.
In Arizona the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury clams is 2 years, so there's no need to rush. Hopefully your eyelashes will grow back and your eyesight will not have been damaged.
