Help those with sight issues

To the Editor:

If you have ever gone shopping at the Harvard Wal-mart, you will notice a consistent surging of the lighting.

This might be a great way to conserve energy, but, for a visually impaired person, it is a shopping nightmare. My mother has macular degeneration and is blind in one eye. When the lights are all on, she has no problem finding her items for purchase. As soon as half the lights dim or go off, she can’t read or see any of the merchandise.

I would think a big corporation such as Walmart would be more handicap friendly, as they are with all their motorized carts and handicap spaces. There are more impairments in your shoppers than limited mobility. Doesn’t seem like they thought this energy saving idea all the way through.
