A senior citizen reported to the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV) to renew his driver's license. The state of North Carolina refused to issue a renewal driver's license and failed the gentleman because he did not pa ss the eye test. Using the last line projected through the viewing scope that the driver could read successfully, the examiner concluded that the driver could not see clearly objects more than 500 cm away and would be a danger to himself and other drivers if allowed on the road. The examiner explained to the gentleman that if he corrected his distant vision, he would pass and receive a renewal license from the DMV. Before affixing his signature to the form which explained why the state of North Carolina had refused renewal, the elderly man wanted to read the document. This gave the examiner the opportunity to notice that the man read the document at a distance of 75 cm from his eyes.
(Assume a typical value of 2.00 cm for the distance between the retina and the lens system of the eye and a normal reading distance of 25.0 cm.)
