Woman Can't Close Her Eyes After Bungled Plastic Surgery (VIDEO)

And now for an eye-opening look at the dangers of plastic surgery: a New Jersey woman is suing her doctor, claiming she cannot fully close her peepers after a cosmetic procedure.

Marilyn Leisz showed CBS New York news to what extent her eyelids can touch, explaining, "That's how it is when I sleep. That's how it is 24-7, 365 days a year." She added that she fears scratching her eyes at night and that she's 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.

Dr. Paul Parker's defense points out that Leisz never complained since the 2005 operation and that she was warned of the risks involved because she's gone under the knife so many times.

There's no word on how much Leisz is seeking in damages.
