Hillary's Fall and New Glasses


The vertical lines that you’ll notice on Secretary of State Clinton’s left lens indicates that the lens is a Fresnel Prism, a type of membrane lens that is cut out and applied to the inside surface of a spectacle lens.  The more vertical lines you see, the higher the power of the prism, so the prism Hillary is wearing is pretty powerful.  Her double vision must therefore be of a significant amount without her prism in place.
Hillary AdjustingThe New York Daily News was among the first media outlets to comment on the observation.  Coverage of the story however has been impoverished by the meager discussion about Hillary’s concussion, without a single source that I’ve seen speculating on what caused the double vision, what her treatment has been, and what the outlook for resolution is.  But perhaps you’re thinking along different lines, possibly something like Hillary’s now famous line at the Benghazi hearing where the now famous Fresnel photos were taken:  ”Is her double vision due to a brain bleed, or due to the concussion she experienced when she passed out and hit her head in December?  What difference, at this point, does it make?  It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again.”
Please note:  Like the source that I have linked from, this post is not meant to be a political one, either. 
I am just wondering what other symptoms follow from Hillary's fall and concussion.   Like when she dropped her papers:
Biden had just wheeled around Hillary so that the photographer in the picture did not catch her picking up the papers.  Obama joined in so  that surely the photographer wouldn't get a photo of that to embarrass her.
Or is just dropping papers just that.
