LensCrafters in Hickory Point Mall has closed, according to the company's website.
The website does not list a date for the closure. Calls to the Forsyth store's number are forwarded to the Springfield LensCrafters location, where an employee referred questions to the company's corporate office. A corporate spokeswoman was not immediately available Tuesday evening.
The eye clinic is the latest in a series of mall occupants to leave this year. Departures included Payless Shoe Source, The Children's Place, MC Sports, Kirlin's Hallmark, Rue 21 and The Limited. Several of the closures resulted from the retailers' overall financial problems and were not isolated to the Forsyth locations.
But there have been some bright spots, too. In September, the mall welcomed both T.J. Maxx, which relocated from the Brettwood Village shopping center, and Hibbett Sports. A new restaurant, Burrito Express, has joined the food court area.
