8:15 am
newborn when they are born. your pediatrician might do an annual exam for your child. here is the shocking thing is lots of children become near-sighted and don't realize they are near-sighted. they don't complain, they don't know that is normal vision. so a mother will bring a child in when they failed a screening test in kindergartner or at a preschool and come in and the mother is shocked the child can't see the big e on the eye chart or the child can't see the pictures. i have special pictures i can show a smaller child. a smaller child might look at a hand or see this is a picture of a car or truck and identify that for me. that child is amazed when they then put on the glasses, what i'll do is i'll say, the child may not want glasses, and i'll say, well, try these in my trial frame and i can -- these are like lego glasses and yes, these are you! >> when they see better, they realized. >> and then the children are

excited and say, mom, you can see the individual leaves on the trees! this is thrilling! >> these kids sometimes don't know that they can't see. it can affect their academics. >> absolutely. if you can't see the blackboard, you can't do well in school. if you can't see, you can't do well in school. and visual learning is maybe 80% of learning. so you hear it but you can't write it down or you can't see it, you're not going to learn it. so having good vision is super important. sometimes the children in third, fourth, fifth grade, they will say, i can't see the blackboard and simple glasses help. and it's very important. if your child needs glasses and 40% of americans are, as you said, near-sighted, if your child needs glasses, there is a positive spin to it which is with these glasses, i can show them in the trial frames, with these glasses, you can see better for school, for sports, for video games and you'll hit that baseball and you're going to play better soccer. it's a very positive experience. >> parents walk in and say i
8:17 am
want an screening, an exam and i wanted something specific? >> excellent question. your school usually does an eye screening but if you feel like there is a problem and you see the symptoms of a problem, your child is squinting, your child is sitting very close to the television or the video, your child is resisting reading. sometimes kids don't want to read they get a headache reading and they don't enjoy reading and can't see well. if you feel there is a problem, there definitely should be a screening. if they fail a screening, bring them to an ophthalmologist and we will do a complete eye exam and we do a complete eye exam inside the eye also. thank you, doctor. we have to leave it there. >> okay. >> we will be back and talk about 11 members of a book train kicked off a wine train in napa valley. was it because they were noisy or was race a factor? you're watching "cbs this morning." announcer: this portion of "cbs this morning" sponsored by find more than a pair of glasses.

8:33 am
>> what do you think? >> there is always one of those down the roads somewhere. usually a very lucrative one but i know a lot of teenagers, including my 19-year-old daughter won't be happy. a customer taunting note to a waitress in a tip line for a bill for $112. a diner wrote l.o.l. and that is short for laugh outloud and posted a picture of it on facebook and the receipt said one hour for food. the waitress called the experience cruel and unnecessary. she said waiters are often just the messen ger enmessenger for delays. as minimum wages rise, restaurants say no to tips. yes, to higher prices. the times reports a growing number of restaurants are experimenting with no tipping policies to manage rising labor costs. frank bruni is here, an op-ed columnist for "the new york
8:34 am
times" and the paper's former restaurant critic. this is a tough decision for any restaurant owner. is this really a gamble on what kind of staff is going to work for you and what they are willing to do? >> it's a gamble on staff and it's also a big gamble when it comes to customers. we are so accustomed to the tradition of tipping in this country. i think a lot of customers are deeply unsettled when they get into a restaurant and find out they are not going to tip. they feel sometimes wrongly that it gives them less control over the experience and i think that is the real x-factor here is how a customer will feel about tip prices being rolled into the overall price or added automatically. >> what is the intent for restaurants to do it this year? in the past the whole idea means the tips can pay their waiting staff less because they get tips. >> a couple of things going on. there has been a revolt over recent years what is called the backup of a restaurant. dishwashers and especially cooks and restaurants are experiencing
8:35 am
a shortage in getting talented kitchen staff. kitchen staff ends up being paid less than waiting staff because they don't pay for tipping. if you take the tip prices and put them into the rest of the menu you as management have control over how the money is sdurs disbursed and rising minimum wage laws means that restaurants are having to pay people in the back of the house more and, again, they have to come up with a different way of distributing the revenue, different economic model. >> do you think there are any waiters or waitresses would want to work by this system? >> absolutely. there is studies showing there is discrimination in tipping. blond waiters get more brunette. >> wait recesses with lipstick. >> african-american waiters get less. some waiters and waitresses i think would like this a lot because it would take some of the random behavior out of the e occasion. others wouldn't because they feel they can use their charm to up their income. so it depends on the serve every. >> the advantage of tips as
8:36 am
wages has been that, of course, theoretically you don't have to report them on a tax return or won't report them on a tax return and waiters and waitresses like that. so much being done on credit cards they lose that. >> right. absolutely. one of the reasons a lot of servers like tipping culture 10, 20 years ago is because a great number of tips came in cash and that has diminished to a point i think it's almost negligible how much tipping happens in cash. >> have you seen many restaurants test this out? >> we are seeing more and more all the time. here in new york, in different ways in a different cost levels, dirk candy, a restaurant downtown, per se. sushi asuta are finding different ways to do away with tipping and sometimes they are rolling what would be the tipped money into the overall price and sometimes they are adding a 20% administrative charge line. restaurants on the west coast that have experimented with one line for tips to the front of the house and then another line that says if you'd like to leave the kitchen staff a tip. >> at the end of the day, this means -- would mean higher prices, right? >> yes. >> in terms of how much entree
8:37 am
and appetizer cost? >> it means a higher price. the argument is what you've actually spent by the time you walk out the door hasn't changed. you just didn't do a portion of that indiscretionary tipping. >> do you think this is happening at certain specific restaurants, any chance this will spread? >> i don't know. it will spread for a while but it's hard to change decades of diner behavior. like i said i think the average diner thinks the tip gives him or her a lot of power at that table and is reluctant to give that up even reasons to do so. it makes your experience better. >> it's standard in europe? >> absolutely. i was in italy a couple of years. a tip was extra little thing. >> do you still tip? >> i try tip well. >> i agree. it's important to tip well and remember that most servers are making less than minimum wage. >> and they are working really hard. >> yes.

and wife. >> yea! >> big bird! what are you doing? >> oh, i'm looking for the baby. >> can somebody say have fun? oh, but school is really great. you should have been there. >> did you like it? >> oh, yes. >> after 44 years and 15 emmy awards, sonia is leaving "sesame street." and wrote a new memoir. she joins us only on "cbs this morning." good morning! >> good morning. it's great to be here. >> childhood dream coming true! maria, maria, maria! i'm here! >> thank you for flashing my lights before my eyes and everybody else's eyes this morning! >> isn't that great to see? >> it's remarkable. there were moments in those clips that i don't even remember shooting. >> it's such a cultural thing

because so many of us grew up watching "sesame street." >> of course. >> you were the first latina many of us saw on tv and people said you're the most loved person ever. >> thank you, thank you. i've been very gratified. i love it when people who live in the midwest, say you're the first latin person that i've ever known or seen. i'm sure they know latin people, they had to know latin people but i think when they see me, i was the first one that was real to them. >> yes. >> and i think that is wonderful. >> yeah. >> it's -- well, i mean, as a parent, you helped raise my three children. and i know you probably heard that millions and millions of times. i like what our makeup artist said you're the beyonce of "sesame street." >> that's not too shabby! >> but seriously. i mean, you know, i know you know how much you've meant to so many kids growing up. it's just extraordinary. >> yeah. thank you. i found a lot of comfort when i
8:45 am
was a child watching television, so i think that it was natural for me to fall into a show that was providing comfort. "sesame street "" means a lot to many people but for me it meant an hour there was safety and comfort. >> that was important to you, why? >> because i was raised in a tumultuous environment and i would watch those children on tv land now, "father knows best" and "leave it to beaver." and it gave me comfort. "sesame street" shows comfort and order and love in a place that is recognizable to children who might be in the same situation i was. >> what was it like growing up in the south bronx? >> it was pretty tumultuous and there was alcoholism. >> in your family? >> in my family and there was violence and there was love and there was humor. it was a mish-mosh.
8:46 am
i found comfort watching television. >> you call in this book love and chaos in the south bronx. it's such a difference in childhood than the one you presented to the world. when you talk about that, that safe place, was there something like that for you? >> i think that i retained maria. i was the best maria i could be because of that childhood. not? spite not in spite of it. i recalls remembered myself watching television and i always remembered how it felt -- how it felt to look for answers and try to put two and two together. i was the kind of kid who would find shapes in the cracks in the ceiling and the blaster and hero "sesame street" is animation where kids are encouraged to find shapes where they were not obvious to the viewer. so it was a perfect fit, i think. >> you ended up getting a scholarship to a school in pittsburgh' came to broadway,
8:47 am
original cast of "god spell." >> yes we did that as a student project. >> there couldn't have been a lot of parts for latina actresses in new york. >> there was none. when i grew up, there were no latins in television or in the media and no black people either. so i did "god spell" and when i got the call for "sesame street," i was absolutely thrilled. i can't say there were a million actresses going up for the part, but i was the one who lucked out. >> i have so many questions for you. do you have a fivertavorite muppet? >> yes. oscar the grouch. >> really? >> yes. because i think he brings nuance and when i'm talking to him, i can't tell if he is 8 years old or 48 years old. >> was it tough acting with muppets? >> oh, sure. my first muppet that i had to act with was grover. i kept looking down at frank, the puppeteer at my feet.

he said, don't look at man down there! look at me! and carol who plays big bird, don't be nervous. only millions of people watching you. >> what do you think of "sesame street" transitioning to hbo? >> it's been on the air a long time and "sesame street" has always reflected the times it existed. it came out of the '60s and civil rights movement and very idealistic show. i think its move to hbo it's still mirroring the society we are living in. if i criticize anything, and i'm not, i would criticize the times we live in and not the show. >> now that you're retiring, what are you going to do next? write more? >> i think i'll write more. i love to put mice sensibility in books. i have another children's book, picture book that is also going to be released in september, in addition to becoming maria. and certainly i will continue to try to help kids in whatever arena is afforded to me. >> we will miss you.
