Study: Improving the legibility of prescription medication labels for older adults and adults with visual impairment. Most current prescription labels fail to meet print guidelines, especially in print size. We therefore compared the legibility of current prescription medication labels against the legibility of prototype labels, based on current guidelines for legibility.
