Watanuki wonders if she foresaw his need for new glasses and placed these here since there are no coincidences, only hitsuzen.
Wow ... theres no such thing as coincidence in this world. the only thing is hitsuzen.

There is a lot of wonderful esoteric talk about hitsuzen and human psychology here.
Maybe it's Nasu's frustration at Japanese having a ridiculous number of alternatives for the word itself, each of them subtly differentiated by means of context-there's the ubiquitous unmei), the more formal 定め (sadame), the Known To Be Translated Erroneously As 'Fate' Due To The Limitations Of English 必然 (hitsuzen) - and that's just the more common terms that I'm listing down here.
