Hypotrichosis is when there is a lower-than-normal number of hairs in the eyelashes. Eyelash growth occurs when follicles are activated from the root to improve length and promote growth. The function of the eyelashes is to keep small debris out of the eye.

-Anagen: First growth phase.
-Catagen: Transition phase.
-Telogen: Resting phase.
