Fiddleford H. McGucket most likely has Strabismus/Lazy eye!
Obviously when he was wearing his glasses all the time, his eyes were righted, but this is just for pointing out the wandering eye over time.
We can see his eyes are starting to unfocus, and he’s not looking through his glasses, which are also broken by this point
Completely unfocused, he’s not worn his glasses in a very long time, clearly.
When he wears only one of the goggle lenses, one eye rights itself completely, while the other doesn’t! His prescription goggles focus his eyes!
And when wearing the goggles, his eyes are completely righted!
As a person with strabismus i would like this headcanon/unstated canon? to be more popular! Representation of characters with Strabismus who are meant to be relatable important characters is like, nonexistent, let’s bring on the headcanon!

Jesper nudged the sugar bowl down the table to him.
Kaz rolled his eyes. “Not for my coffee, you podge. I used the money to buy up sugar shares and placed them in private accounts for all of us—under aliases, of course.”
“I don’t like speculation,” said Matthias.
“Of course you don’t. You like things you can see. Like piles of snow and benevolent tree gods.”
“Oh, there it is!” said Inej, resting her head on Nina’s shoulder and beaming at Matthias. “I missed his glower.”
“Besides,” said Kaz, “it’s hardly speculation if you know the outcome.”
