The New York Daily News reports that closeups of Secretary of State Clinton taken during her Senate testimony Wednesday revealed that her head injury last month left her with lingering vision problems. As she testified about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, Clinton appeared to have tiny vertical lines etched onto the left lens of her new brown glasses.
Clinton’s spokesman confirmed Thursday night she is wearing the special glasses as a result of the fall and concussion she suffered last month, but he did not elaborate. Experts told the Daily News that Clinton likely has a Fresnel prism placed on her glasses. The adhesive panel is used to treat double vision. After her fall and concussion, Clinton was later hospitalized at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Columbia for a blood clot near her brain.
