Posted: February 27, 2017 at 1:10 pm   /   Business, Features, Politics, Top Stories

Why should it be necessary – legally required – to go to a “bricks and mortar” eye doctor’s office to get your vision checked – and a prescription for new contacts or eyeglasses issued? It’s 2017 – not 1917 – and apps such as Opternative and GlassesOn can check for refractive error via a 25 minute online […]

Posted: February 20, 2017 at 11:19 pm   /   Business, Features, Politics, Top Stories

In case you missed it, as it probably didn’t affect your life in the slightest, “A Day Without  Immigrants” was last Thursday.
