People queue with trolleys in a supermarket car park

Your food shopping experience

How are you getting on with shopping for food?

What are your experiences of queues, social distancing, assistance available in store?

Have you managed to secure online delivery slots?

The Nystagmus Network continues to lobby alongside other bigger VI charities (please see this recent Daily Telegraph article) for the rights of people with nystagmus and other sight conditions to have priority treatment for both online and in store shopping, alongside other disabled people, and for there to be more understanding about the need to pick up packets and tins to read the labels if a fully sighted friend, family member or member of store staff is not available/allowed to assist.

We will also raise a question with Sight and Sound at our forthcoming webinars about the best aid to reading labels.

Please contact us with your thoughts and comments.

Thank you
