I have noticed the same thing with a lot of products. I don't think it is just aging eyes either. Yesterday I tried to read the directions on a bottle of water testing chemical for my aquarium and I had to go get a magnifying glass to make them out. I suspect that it comes from living in a lawsuit-oriented culture.
I can hear the defense attorney now, "Well, the warning was printed right there on the bottle for all to see. We can't be blamed if the plaintiff didn't read it." <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
I'm surprised that letters that small can be printed clearly; ain't technology wonderful?
May I walk in beauty.
