Kira told me that if she ever has to get glasses, she doesn't want glasses, she wants "one of those thingies that you hold with your eyebrow and your cheek" (monocle.) I told her that usually it's both eyes that need correction, and she said, "Yeah, so I'll get two of them." I tested her out with some quarters to see if she could hold monocles in. She can. Can you imagine how many times she'd come home from school and say, "I lost another monocle today," or "My monocle broke when I was running around the playground (like a maniac) and so-and-so stepped on the pieces and had to go to the doctor because she had glass embedded in her foot. Her mom wants you to call her," and then I'd say "Dammit Kira! That's the 5th monocle this month! I'm not made of monocles you know! Now go to your room!"
No, I think if, heaven forbid, she ever needs glasses, I'll get her prescription goggles. They seem pretty durable. I had to get glasses in second grade because I'm SO nearsighted. I thought for sure my mom would make me get cat-eye glasses and I'd look like a total dork. But she didn't make me get the cat eyes. I got to pick what kind I wanted so I got some huge ones with sun-darkening lenses. I didn't look like a dork at all.
