visual impairment products for food labels
Does anyone have any recommendations or news on products designed to help read food labels in supermarkets? I personally find the lettering often used on labels accompanied with the floursecent lighting often very glaring and difficult to read.

I've read a bit about pocket/wallet magnifiers online but haven't gone as far as a purchase yet.

I feel it should be the supermarket's responsibility to provide VIPs for those customers with poor eyesight - is anyone aware of any legislation that requires customer services departments to hold onto something like this? I know they ARE required by law to carry a lot of far more peculiar things!

Sorry to complain but I'm looking for a long-time problem that I'm sure doesn't only affect me!

I have the cashiers read the labels for me. Or you can go to customer service. I have seen customers use special aids. What do you mean by VIP?

VIPs = Visual Impairment Products...

What vision aids have you seen other customers using and in what shops? I'll have to ask at customer services to see what they have; I wonder if they're required to cater for this kind of problem?

Our office believes in low vision services and products. There is an excellent catalog of low vision products called "Independent Living Aids, Inc"  you can get a catalog at 1 800 537 2118  or visit their web site at www. independentliving. com  

Most metropolitan areas have someone and MD or OD that does low visual aids analysis.
