While giving her testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the attack in Benghazi, Libya, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton donned new glasses to help with "lingering issues" from her concussion.

A spokesman confirmed that the Clinton will "be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion," New York Magazine's Daily Intelligencer reports.

The New York Daily News first reported on Clinton's new frames. Experts told the NYDN the glasses were likely outfitted with a Fresnel prism, an adhesive panel used to treat double vision.

Dehydration caused by a stomach virus led Clinton to faint in December 2012. She hit her head when she fell and was diagnosed with a concussion on Dec. 13, the AP reports.

Clinton returned to work in early January 2013.
