Friday, September 18th 2020, 7:28 am

By: News 9

A first of its kind technology in Oklahoma is turning a local glasses store into a one stop shop for lenses.

The cell phone-based technology allows customers to receive their prescription without an extra trip to the optometrist.  

A year ago, at the New York City vision expo, the new technology caught the eye of Oklahoma based company, Black Optical. When the pandemic hit, the company believed it was the right time to introduce it to the sooner state. 

At Black Optical’s Oklahoma City location, optician Josh Wilcox says he hears one question often, “Hey, do you guys do prescriptions?” He says they are now able to answer yes. 

The technology called wave front was developed by NASA, Wilcox says. The small device runs off smart phone software and sits atop a height adjustable stand.

Drone footage shows extent of Arctic ice loss [Video]

From the air, the impact of climate change on the Arctic Circle is clear to see.

What was once a solid ice sheet is now water scattered with ever smaller lumps of broken up ice.

With rising Arctic temperatures, this year’s sea ice minimum is expected to be the second-lowest expanse in four decades of record-keeping.

This week a team of scientists visited the region on a Greenpeace research vessel.

They said the dwindling ice cover means an uncertain future for animals, such as seals and polar bears.

Dr Kirsten Thompson is from the University of Exeter in the UK.

“It just shows us how rapidly and how profoundly this area is changing and the Artic is such an incredible habitat for these species so we know that the distribution of these species is going to change, some species unfortunately will die out in years to come and others will
