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

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.
