2 Answers

Eyelashes keep dust and other small particles out of the eye and are sensitive to being touched, thus providing a warning that an object such as an insect is near the eye.

Eyelashes protect the eye from debris, dust and small particles and perform some of the same functions as whiskers do on a cat or a mouse in the sense that they are sensitive to being touched, thus providing a warning that an object (such as an insect) is near the eye (which then closes reflexively)
