Yesterday Barack Obama helped to catch a woman who nearly fainted during a speech at the White House. President Obama was addressing concerns about the highly publicized website problems regarding the Affordable Care Act when a health problem was unfolding behind him.
In this image captured at the 0:07 mark, both of Karmel's eyes, particularly her left eye are momentarily widely opened. This "white and wide" eye configuration is not a symptom or finding of fainting or pre-fainting - rather it is a nonverbal manifestation of her own fear of fainting (after all, nobody wants to faint and she is pregnant, standing in back of the President and on television).
Note also that Ms. Allison's central (inner) eyebrows are also slightly elevated which is also expected for physical or emotional pain.
The ILR can also be seen just prior to or during a significant physical act.
