Dr. Blechman is the lead Optometrist at SharpeVision Austin. With many of her family members also in the Austin area, she couldn't imagine a better place to practice medicine.

Dr. Blechman made a move to Austin to be closer to family. On weekends, she loves to explore the new city with her husband, trying new restaurants and food trucks, and enjoying the outdoors.
