Marilyn Leisz Video: NJ Woman Can't Close Eyes After Surgery
Marilyn Leisz Says She Can't Close Her Eyes Due To A Botched Surgery. Here is the Marilyn Leisz Video
If you ever meet Marilyn Leisz, don't think that she's starting at you. The New Jersey woman says she is unable to close her eyes after getting cosmetic surgery. Leisz sued her cosmetic surgeon more than $100,000.
Marilyn Leisz sued Dr. Paul Parker for negligence, claiming that she cannot close her eyes after a botched blepharoplasty procedure.
Parker's attorney claims that he was warned Marilyn Leisz of the risks of the procedure. A jury ruled that Parker did "deviate from the accepted standard of care for this procedure."
Marilyn Leisz says her quality of life has been seriously damaged.
Leisz said she cannot close her eyes – even when she sleeps. She said she uses gel and a vaporizer at night to keep them lubricated, but she is afraid of injuring them further or losing her vision.
“All the favorite things I used to, like tennis, racquetball, swimming, horseback riding, bike riding, skeet shooting, gardening, I can’t do those things,” Leisz said.
Marilyn Leisz recently appeared on the Today Show to discuss her condition.
