It could be me, but aren't you compareing a string to a string?
'type_help' (with normal single quotes) is a string value.
"Eye Exam & Glasses" can be a string value as well in MySQL, although you
should always use single quotes.
Oh, and a reminder: to solve your strange date-format problems, just store a
date in a DATE-type column.
