Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. New Braunfels Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Meet Your Local TSO Veramendi Eye Doctor:
Our New Braunfels optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Dr. Jennifer Blaschke is a graduate of the University of Houston College of Optometry. She has earned her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M in College Station.
Dr. Blaschke has received extensive training in the treatment and management of ocular disease, foreign body removal, contact lens fitting, and co-management of refractive and cataract surgery.
Her professional memberships include the Texas Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association.

Erica - Vision Therapist
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. In May 2014 the opportunity to become a Vision Therapist opened up. Looking forward to a change of scenery and new career I moved to San Antonio and began working Dr. Nielsen’s Texas State Optical and her Nielsen Vision Development Center (NVDC). I have since completed several courses including the OEPF Curriculum. I absolutely love working with my kids/patients and their families. This is a rewarding field both for myself and all those who go through the program.
When home I like to spend my time outdoors, keeping busy with various art projects, as well as tending to a spoiled cat and one wonderful dog. I also love spending time with my family, watching movies, reading and listening to music.

Misty - Optometric Technician
I began my career in the Optical field in 2012 while located in Abilene, Texas where I lived with my husband and two daughters. I became a certified medical assistant and scribed for a team of four doctors at a large retinal clinic. After my husband's retirement from the United States Air Force in 2018, we relocated to TSO Veramendi where I am continuing my education in Optometry and Vision Therapy with TSO Veramendi. I really enjoy working in the pediatric field and learning new methods to assist in therapy sessions for patients.
When not working, I enjoy relaxing at home with my family and having cookouts with good company!
