PCOS, high testosterone and hair loss (Photo)

I have PCOS and I have extreme eyelash loss, and some eyebrow and hair loss. My question is, can high testosterone effect eyelash growth? I am seeing regrowth on my head and brows but not my lashes.

You have eyelash loss with PCOS. Have you tried the drug lattisse?  This works well for eyelash loss

No, testosterone does not affect eyelashes. See a dermatologist of physician specializing in hair medicine to determine the precise causes. PCOS is not associated with eyelash loss.
