Astigmatism in both eyes, weak muscles and near-sightedness. His perscription changes every single year enough to need a perscription.

I got my first glasses in 6th grade. My eyes are too bad, but I’m nearsighted.

Denver was 7. Nearsighted.

Now it’s the girls.  In a houseful of 5, not one of us escaped the need for corrective eyewear. [flickr id="6921772134" thumbnail="small" overlay="true" size="small" group="" align="right"]

Molly is just like her daddy. Astigmatism in both eyes, near-sighted.

Kennedy is (as always) the odd-duck.  One eye is practically perfect.  The other is a mess. Astigmatism, near-sighted. Her glasses are lop-sided in correction.

I wish the girls had been able to escape this fate – but they look darn cute, don’t they?

    I took my oldest (almost 6) to the eye doc last week and he is still good w/out glasses, but already seems to be either uncooperative or seeing 20/30. I know he’ll need them eventually. Your girls look so cute in them!
