BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- A Binghamton business which has helped the community see clearer for more than 100 years will close at the end of June.

Kevin Whiting, one of the owners of Binghamton Optical, says changes in the optical industry and the other owner looking to retire contributed to the decision.

He also says the owners tried to sell the business, but there were no buyers.

Binghamton Optical has two locations, one at 17 Main Street and the other on 30 West State Street. The West State Street location is closed as of Tuesday, according to Whiting. 

Whiting notes until its closure at the end of June, the Main Street location will work to get prescriptions to customers as best they can.

He says Binghamton Optical has been in business for the past 120 years.
