There is no doubt that Hillary Clinton is a fashion icon. She's been known to don a “killer” pair of shades.

If you look closer, you can see that they're blue:
They're definitely blue.
She's such a big fan of sunglasses that she's sometimes the only one wearing them:
Why is Hillary Clinton wearing blue eyeshades nowadays?

Clinton was testifying on the Benghazi debacle. The left lens of Hillary’s glasses appeared hazy and a close-up of her black frames revealed a sticker with vertical lines. That sticker is commonly used to manage diplopia or double vision...
Now let’s get back to Hillary. Around the time of those Benghazi hearings in early 2013, Clinton reportedly took a tumble and suffered some type of head trauma.
Word circulated on ophthalmology bulletin boards that Clinton indeed was sporting a Fresnel Prism over her glasses. She became the focus of many frantic emails in the eye community. I would surmise from looking at the direction of the lines on Hillary’s glasses, that Clinton developed a sixth cranial nerve paralysis or palsy as the result of her fall.
The eye specialist continues:
Reports have come to light that Hillary had a dural venous sinus thrombosis, a treatable blood clot in one of the outflow tracts of the brain and another potential cause of a sixth nerve palsy. As far as nerves go, the sixth cranial nerve is quite long and prone to stretching or damage.
That damage will cause double vision and this is likely why Clinton was wearing the Fresnel prism.
Now, having established she has had vision problems in the past, let's move on to the sensitive topic of whether or not she is having seizures.
Two videos will suffice for those to examine for themselves:
It is a matter of debate whether this was Hillary Clinton being awkwardly dramatic or a type of seizure. And now for a second video:
Two of my family members have seizure disorders. One had photosensitive petit mal seizures, the other an undefined seizure disorder that results in absence seizures, and I worked with a woman that had grand mal seizures. I have personally witnessed over 30 seizures, up close and personal. What Clinton experienced on Sunday looked an awful lot like a seizure to me.
Blue sunglasses lenses are used to treat photosensitivity. There exists a type of sunglasses called Zeiss Z1 blue lenses that treat epileptic photosensitivity.

These Zeiss Z1 blue lenses are not available in the United States, not that this would prevent Clinton's team from attaining them.
