A general surgeon from Texas, John R. Coppedge, MD, FACS, writes in The Hill that Hillary Clinton’s “abnormal eye movements” during her speech in Philadelphia on Monday are likely symptomatic of serious health issues.
From The Hill:
Her eyes did not always move in the same direction at the same time. It appears that she has a problem with her left sixth cranial nerve. That nerve serves only one function and that is to make the lateral rectus muscle contract. That muscle turns the eye in the direction away from the midline.
It comes out of the base of the brain and runs along the floor of the skull, immediately beneath the brain before coursing upward to the eye. Dysfunction of that muscle causes the striking picture of the eyes not aiming in the same direction and causes the patient to suffer double vision..
