How did you react when you first got glasses? Are you suppose to feel off balanced?

Trees Have Leaves! I was age 5 when i got my first glasses and i distinctly remember leaving the optical shop and remarking to my mom that "trees have leaves!" she thought i was just being my normal weird self. People who have never been nearsighted cannot relate to that experience. It's common to feel a little off balance until your brain adjusts to your new vision.
