Woman Forced to Literally Sleep With One Eye Open After Botched Plastic Surgery

The woman, referred to by Chinese media only as Ms. Ma, reportedly paid 20,000 yuan ($2,800) for a double eyelid surgery at the Jimei Plastic Hospital in Zhengzhou, Henan province, in September of 2018.

The woman was shocked to realize that she was no longer unable to close her eyes completely.
