Woman Can't Close Eyes Due To Plastic Surgery


Marilyn Leisz of New Jersey is suing her plastic surgeon for negligence after a procedure left her unable to fully close her eyes. The doctor claims that she was well aware that having to literally sleep with two eyes open was a risk when she agreed to get eyelid surgery.

A jury is currently deliberating the case.
