Talking Prescription Reader Law Helps Low Vision Residents



A recent law in Nevada aims to help low vision, print impaired and elderly residents safely manage their medications. Nevada SB 131 mandates that all retail pharmacies offer free prescription readers (or information on how to get one) that read aloud all of the information on the printed label. The readers work with special talking labels provided by a pharmacist at no charge. Large print and Braille labels are options as well.
