This episode contains almost every element central to the themes of Little House series: a minor family crisis, a health issue, problems at school and fights with bullies, the importance of family and accepting differences. The issue of Mary\'s failing eyesight provides a sad foreshadowing, considering what eventually happened to the real (and TV) Mary Ingalls. This episode ranks as a favorite because the central issue is not failing eyesight, but the insecurity of a pre-teen girl. The episode is pertainent to real life today: we all just want to be accepted. A recommended viewing for young girls 8-12 going through identity and acceptance issues.
