Complete Headline: Does Hillary have double vision after blood clot scare? Close up shot shows 'Fresnel prism' lenses in Clinton’s glasses

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has wasted no time in getting back to business since returning to work following treatment for a blood clot.

But tiny lines visible on the 65-year-old's glasses when she appeared before the Senate this week indicate she may still be experiencing the after-effects of her spell of ill health.

It is thought Clinton was wearing a Fresnel prism on her spectacles - a stick-on panel often used to treat double vision.

Not that it makes any difference..... I figured she only wore those glasses to hide that there were no tears with that “crying” performance she gave.

Photos of Hillary when she was a college student show that she wore glasses with thick lenses. Presumably she is near sighted.

She has not been photographed in public with glasses for a long time, so she probably has worn contact lenses for many years.

All of a sudden, she’s got the glasses on so it might be the case that the glasses contain some sort of correction that can’t be obtained with contacts.

Or maybe she couldn’t wear the contact lenses for a while after the blood clot and her vision hasn’t stabilized enough yet to go back to them or she hasn’t had a chance to build up contact wearing time to a full day.

Could be much ado about nothing.

Probably some form of new tele prompter so she can read the answers prepared for any occasion to obfuscate any truth or direct answer.

Her what does it matter answer Her attempt to be the equal of Joseph Welsh’s outburst at the McCarthy hearing: Have you no decency. In other words, when the truth is at hand, change the subject.

Great minds think alike.

My first thought too.

Some form of teleprompter.

Ted Kennedy had copyrighted the neck brace as a “Sympathy Fashion Accessory”, so Hillery was left with the “I’m Recovering From A Serious Head Injury” glasses for her sympathy.

Just on the remote chance that the committee might ask her a serious question or re-question any of her flippant answers.

Double vision? Imagine having to wake up to this.

More seriously, is this a Fresnel lens or just doesn't have an anti-reflective coating? Some people will only spend money on AR coatings if they wear glasses all the time so contact lens wearers might skip it.

Just wondering. Are thick glasses more likely to have the prisms required to correct vision problems caused by a stroke???

I just checked my own lasses. Those internal reflections are perfectly normal. Judging by the head on view, she's myopic, like I am. She's also been that way or some time.

There's a high resolution picture around and one lens is definitely different (not embedded out of courtesy for those still on slow connections)

Oh come on. Many people have vertigo and it’s not due to as Hillary would like you to believe a concussion and blood clot. If she really had those; she would have been hospitalized the first time she had a blood clot. What this liar is doing now is wanting you to feel sorry for her as she convinces you at the same time she will be able to assume the POTUS through some miraculous recovery. You done been caught Hitlary.

Yes, her left lens lens definitely has a different focus, but it also looks like it is reflecting more light than the right lens. It might just be the angle or it might have been made in a hurry while AR coatings typically take a few more days to make.

Double Vision? It ain't the blood clot. It's the Heavy Drinking.

Double vision or what have you....HAS ANYONE EVER SEEN A MORE DISGUSTING DOG AND PONY SHOW? A DEMOCRAT PITTY-PAT FAWNING PARTY....ONLY RAND PAUL AND SEVERAL OTHERS ASKED HARD QUESTIONS...ALL ASKED TOO MANY QUESTIONS AT ONCE, A FATAL MISTAKE OF POLITICIANS AND REPORTERS ALIKE...(trying to show how much they think they know) THIS IS THE OLD HILLARY DOUBLE SPEAK AND SHE IS OFFENDED BY BEING ASKED AT ALL. MCCAIN’S PART IN THE D&P SHOW WAS SO SOPHOMORIC, LENGTHY, FULL OF NON-NEWS AS TO BE STUPID. Any serious boss would have fired the woman...it is frightening how much power she seems to have.

The former First Lady went head-to-head with foes at the Senate hearings over the attack that left four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, dead.

Clinton is expected to return to private life next week and is contemplating a run for President in 2016.

That is the difference it makes....Hillary Clinton is another student of Saul Alinsky...she and Bill believe in the Third Way...Bill admits to governing in part that way. Hillary is a Socialist unlike BHO who is a confused Marxist,Socialist, Statist......not good in any way for real America. The media is already in bed with this over the hill politician...O'Reilly blew it with Romney, as did Rove and Morris...we need new and clear headed pundits.

She’s a sick puppy (thyroid) who will not be running in 2016. The sooner she fades to obscurity the better

I suspect that she either had a DVT or TIA or both. Basically a minor stroke. The hand clenching and swollen knuckles might suggest RA. Heavy bags under eyes, eyes are bloodshot. Probably taking hypnotics to sleep. Thickness of hair suggest she’s on estrogens. Eye sight is failing. I give her 18 months tops. The only question is will they find her in Ft. Marcy Park in a blue dress with semen stains and an antique untraceable gun?????? What’s the difference????????

This poor thing is in NO CONDITION to handle the stresses of public office...and I think that will show if she really tries to run in 2016.

Remember how the Dems claimed that Michele Bachmann was in no condition to be President because she once experienced migraine headaches? These same people, along with their flunkies in the media, will do their best to hide Hillary's true condition if she runs in 2016. The Republicans need to start planting the seed that Hillary is not a well woman, poliely expressing concern for her health and suggesting that she needs to start taking better care of herself. Any objections to these statements by the Dems will only serve to generate speculation about her fitness for office.
