This blog article enlightens you on a number of eye diseases that make your clients unsuitable for eyelash treatment. If you are still not sure despite this information, your customer should also seek medical advice to really make sure that there are no worse consequences. In the case of completely unknown complaints, the involvement of a doctor is absolutely necessary.

Here is a list of the most common eye diseases:


Cataract is an eye disease in which the lens of the eye becomes cloudy. As a result, the eyesight deteriorates and fine details in particular can no longer be seen clearly. Some people have only mild visual impairments, while others lose sight quickly. There are various risk factors that favor the development of cataracts. These include, for example, UV radiation, smoking and alcoholism, diabetes and severe myopia. In general, eyelash treatment can be performed on patients with cataracts.


Glaucoma is a group of different eye diseases that damage the optic nerve. Restrictions in the field of vision occur with glaucoma. The most common risk factor is high intraocular pressure. Even the glaucoma does not affect an eyelash treatment.


Diabetic retinopathy is a disease of the retina caused by diabetes. Damage to small blood vessels caused by diabetes causes unnoticed damage to the retina and can eventually lead to blindness. Nevertheless, patients with diabetic retinopathy are suitable for eyelash treatment.


The herpes simplex virus, HSV for short, is a DNA virus from the herpes virus family. In humans, the virus causes an infection known as herpes simplex, which in the majority of cases is accompanied by blister-like skin and mucous membrane rashes. Herpes simplex mainly causes infections in the mouth and face. Eyelash treatment should generally be avoided in the case of this disease.


Psoriasis is an inflammatory, non-contagious disease. It is mainly noticeable through reddish, scaly skin changes that can itch. Patients with this condition have super dry and sensitive skin. If skin areas are affected that make lash lifting difficult, treatment should be avoided.


A cyst is a lump of the upper or lower eyelid caused by obstruction and inflammation of an oil gland of the eyelid. Here, too, eyelash treatment should generally be avoided.


Herdeola (stye) is a purulent inflammation of the glands on the eyelid. A stye is usually triggered by an infection with bacteria, which, for example, gets into the eyes through unwashed hands. In general, eyelash treatment should be avoided here.


Blepharitis is an inflammation of the free edge of the eyelid that can spread to the entire eyelid. Such eyelid inflammation is characterized by redness and swelling of the eyelid and small crusts on the skin and at the base of the eyelashes. Here, too, eyelash treatment should be avoided.


Paralysis or any condition involving the closing or opening of the eyes. The same applies here, we also recommend refraining from an eyelash treatment.


Any disease or disorder that causes shaking, twitching, or uncontrolled movements, such as epilepsy. Eyelash treatment should generally be avoided.
