A visionary concept
DOES a doctor’s ability to see solutions increase with years of experience?
Making ampoule labelling loom large for
deteriorating eyesight is simple.
Probably yes, if we’re talking solutions to problems, but no, if we’re referring to seeing minuscule writing on the various vials of solutions we carry with us to home visits and roadside calls in poor lighting.
The experienced Dr Paul Appleton from Bellbrook, NSW, counters his worsening visual acuity by writing an abbreviated drug name on all his doctor’s bag ampoules. “It’s now a bit safer for the hapless punters when I reach for a syringe!”
