How small is this tablet? Is it as small as the discontinued Lutein Vision?

My ninety-nine year old mother is unable to swallow the larger tablets. For years she used to take the Lutein Vision which was a small capsule and easy for her to swallow. This now limits our choices.

The larger capsules like the Lutein Advanced are too large for her to swallow. Many vitamins are becoming larger and becoming a potential choking hazard. We are disappointed to find the Lutein VIsion has been discontinued.
