Eye graveyard

Ever wonder what happens to all the dust and dirt and eyelashes that get stuck in your eye?  Sure, most of it ends up falling out in a fusillade of tears and blinking, but what about the others?  Surely, some of it ends up travelling to the back of the eye.

The back of the eye must be an eye graveyard where all the micro-detritus is put to rest.  I wonder if there are little caretakers that make sure things are kept neat back there.  Or is it more like a mass grave with eyelashes stacked haphazardly together.
