"Mother, Mother, there's leaves on the trees!"  Me at age seven, walking out 
of the optometrist's with my first pair of glasses perched on my nose.

for whom this is a extremely vivid memory -- everything had *edges* 

my nephew got through elementary school without glasses, by having a good memory.  when we said he had his nose in a book, it was pretty literal.  
in his early teens, he got glasses.  and wow!  did you know grandma has freckles?  and the sidewalk isn't solid grey but sort of flecked?  everyone was shocked he hadn't known these things forever...
