Never mind the police giving him an eyesight test. They should have immediately taken away his driving licence, assuming he has and needs one.
It seems the car accident was his fault, and so should be charged with the appropriate driving offence. Goodness knows, his daughter has been charged often enough with speeding offences in her various vehicles. And I am sure he has an adequate number of lackeys to get him what he wants without having to drive himself.

I don't care what anyone says, driving above the age of 70 can be problematic, driving above the age of 80 is risky. Above 90 is downright dangerous and there is no way anyone over 90 should have a car driving license. As we note, even tootling to the local village shops is a risk.
