Eye Lid Procedure Gone Bad, Patient Can Not Close Her Eyes, Duct Tape To The Rescue

A jury has started deliberating the case of a woman who says she can’t close her eyes, even when she sleeps. She’s blaming an eyelid procedure gone badly, reports CBS 2’s Christine Sloan.

Marilyn Leisz said she went to a Bergen County plastic surgeon to correct bumps on her eyelids from a cosmetic procedure performed by another doctor — and now she can’t fully close her eyes.

“I can close my eyes like this, but to blink I really have to really squeeze my eyes to … fully close my eyes,” Leisz said.

The married mother of two from Bloomingdale was in court Tuesday suing Dr. Paul Parker for negligence. During a break, Sloan asked Dr. Parker and his attorney for comment. They both declined.

But in court, his attorney told the jury Leisz was warned of the risks and that she never complained after the 2005 eyelid surgery called a blepharoplasty.

“This patient was given information about those risks,” the attorney said. Leisz disagrees. Her attorney played the opinion of another doctor who said she wasn’t a good candidate for this surgery because she had had too many other procedures.

“He should have been honest with me and told me I was not a candidate and suggested other options for me,” Leisz said.

Dr Parker said there was one other option they should have pursued.
