Bengaluru doctor prints out Braille prescriptions for visually impaired patients
October 11, 2017
Bengaluru-based eye specialist Dr Shalini Shetty has started giving prescriptions in Braille to visually impaired patients.
This was after she found that people who are blind do not get the option of Braille prints on medicine boxes in India.
It costs Rs 250 to print them in Braille, a cost that Dr Shetty pays herself. She has given out over 115 such prescriptions until now and plans to continue doing so.
Such initiatives by everyone will help move towards an inclusive society.
