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!
