This is why I think it's a dependent.
Active duty personnel who go blind for "no reason" would not be active duty for long.
Plus, even if you cannot drive you can get a Non-Driver's ID with your state.
As for wanting a DL or a card with an SSN - that's also most likely to gather information in case the trade-ins turn out to be stolen.
