I am not the person giving it, so you may wish to confer with them to confirm. But here's what I understand (without proper context).
Identify the ampliative and reductive aspects of one common tool
What are the pros and cons. You chose eyeglasses. Can see clearly, pro. Become dependant, con. (you might want to do some research and not assume I'm right, as I don't wear glasses and I am not an ophthalmologist)
Further, discuss the conditions for transparency and embodiment.
Transparency, in this case, might be considered how much the patient knows about their glasses. Their need for it, the strength of their prescription, if the have a degenerative illness that will further deteriorate eyesight in time.
Embodiment I'm not so sure about. Perhaps how the person is perceived in needing/wearing glasses?
But, full disclosure, I am guessing. I would seriously discuss this with the person issuing the prompt, as they should have a better idea. My advice is telling them (e-mailing, whatever): "This is what I understand. Am I correct?"
