If LashesMD gets into your eye

Because LashesMD is used around the eyes, we have taken care to formulate our product with ingredients that have excellent safety profiles. In addition, our tests have shown that, when used as directed, LashesMD does not get into the eyes and, therefore, should not have a physiological effect on your eyes.

If a small quantity of LashesMD accidentally gets into your eye, it will usually be washed away by your tear film; however, if you are concerned or experience any irritation, we recommend that you lightly splash a little tap water in the eye in order to dilute and rinse away the LashesMD.

As a helpful reminder, we recommend that you be careful not to over-saturate the LashesMD application brush. Remember that you only need to apply a small quantity of LashesMD (the amount on the brush is sufficient for both upper and lower lids on both eyes) at bedtime.

Possible Allergic Reaction

First, please be sure you are using LashesMD as directed on the package. Remember, only a small quantity of LashesMD is needed per application.
LashesMD has been shown to be safe to the skin in tests conducted by an independent research laboratory.

If you know that you are allergic to any of the ingredients in LashesMD, or if you suspect that you may be allergic to any of the ingredients, do not use LashesMD.
