welcome to Healthcare Magic.

It is difficult to comment about cause of hair loss and eye irritation in your case. But one thing is clear from your description that your weight is very less. Malnutrition can lead to hair loss, dry eyes and depressive symptoms.

In your case, it is better to get investigated for low weight. Same time start healthy diet and weight monitoring.

Wish you all the best.
