You guys have obviously never been in a car with that dark of tint at night and are just assuming that you can't see because you're all so e-smart
You're a liar or your buddy is a liar; which one is it?

I've been in limos... It's pretty damn hard to see out the windows at night. Fortunately, none of my friends are douchebags rolling around with 5% so I don't have experience in that sense.

also, that's just explaining the methodology of "grading" vision, not the factors that lead account for perfect vision, myopia, hyperopia, etc.

retinas and **** (i.e. genetics)

the image projected through eyesight is possible because light is refracted from the front part of the eye to the retina. myopia occurs when the physical length of the eye is greater than the optical length (generally an innate trait), which makes it difficult to focus light on the retina. hyperopia happens when the image is being focused behind the retina, rather than directly on it, mostly a result of the eyeball being too small or the focusing power being too weak (again, usually a genetic trait, though this is often outgrown, as eyes are actually quite flexible and can often correct this condition on their own)

fyi: myopia has been thought to have a linkage disequilibrium with intelligence
