    Hil wears special glasses so she doesn't have to see two Bobos

    Seeing double: Clinton spokesperson confirms Daily News analysis that Secretary of State is wearing glasses to correct vision problems after concussion and blood clot

    A close inspection of Hillary Clinton's glasses worn during her Wednesday testimony on Benghazi shows an adhesive Fresnel prism, which is usually used to 'bring things into focus' for those with double vision or muscle weakness in the eye. A Clinton spokesperson confirmed that the new specs are related to her head trauma.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's brown glasses are more than a new accessory. A State Department spokesman confirmed experts' reports that the specs are related to her recent head injury.

    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, the secretary of state appeared to have tiny vertical lines etched onto the left lens of her new brown specs.

    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.
