Dear Mrs. M,
On the face of it it does not seem to be directly as a result of the ADHD. It may be worthwhile taking your son to see an optometrist or ophthalmologist to rule out any possibility of an eye infection/disorder. If there is nothing physically wrong with his eyes it may be a soothing behaviour which makes him feel better when he is stressed or overwhelmed by a situation. Can you pin point any situation occurring roughly the same time as he first pulled at his eye lashes which could have been particularly stressful, even if it did not appear so at the time? Your GP will be able to refer to an optometrist or psychologist in the area.
