Eyelash product recalled

Filed under: , ,

A product that claims to extend the length of your eyelashes, called Age Intervention Eyelash, was recalled this week. The FDA fears that it may cause vision problems in consumers, because it contains a drug that causes increased pressure in the eye. In studies, this drug has been show to increase hair growth (hence its use in a eyelash-growing product). The FDA says that some consumers have experienced decreased vision, and that those who already have elevated pressure in the eye could be especially at risk.

If you own the product, the FDA recommends that you throw it out and contact your doctor if you've had any related health issues.
