Yes, I last Googled:
"TV show where boy is afraid of the optometrist and knows a girl with a ton of brothers who all have the same name"
I was almost ready to give up and think that I had dreamed up this show, instead of it being a real memory from my past. But Google came through: Eerie, Indiana! I happened to see two episodes when I was little, and I was sure I had really seen a TV show that bizarre and it was not my imagination!
