The legibility of medication labelling is a concern for all Canadians. Labels must be easy to read to help ensure patients take their medications appropriately and avoid medication errors. Older adults are more likely to be affected, as many have visual function decrease and higher rates of medication use.
Optometrists (ODs) keep patient records to facilitate clinical management and ensure continuity of care. These records should be comprehensive, accurate, clear, and made at the time of the examination.
