Have purchased Dex4 Fast Acting Glucose Assorted Fruit Tablets 50 back.

How can anyone read the writing on the side of the bottle in the black type on this dark blue wrap. I have almost perfect sight and there was no way, can you think of the older people READING.
When I called the customer service department just now they said yes we know and will change it next year. NEXT YEAR..SHAME ON THAT COMPANY AND FOR ALL RETAILERS THAT CARRY THIS PRODUCT.
