Dr. Brittney Blazek was born and raised in Avilla, Indiana, a small town north of Fort Wayne. Her passion for ocular healthcare first began in high school when she interned with her hometown optometrist. Dr. Blazek’s journey to becoming an optometrist first began at Indiana University in Bloomington where she graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Psychology. She then went on to graduate with a Doctorate of Optometry from Indiana University School of Optometry in 2020. She completed her externships at Lexington VA Medical Center in Lexington, KY, Atwater Eye Care Center in Bloomington, IN, Cataract and Laser Institute in Kokomo, IN, and The Villages outpatient clinic in The Villages, FL. Prior to, and during optometry school, Dr. Blazek worked at a local optometry office where she solidified her passion for private practice optometry. In addition to primary eyecare, Dr. Blazek is particularly interested in ocular disease (such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, dry eye disease, glaucoma, etc.). She is licensed to treat glaucoma and prescribe other ocular medications. She has clinical training and experience in the diagnosis and non-surgical management of both acute and chronic ocular conditions. Dr. Blazek also has extensive experience fitting amniotic membranes, a fairly new treatment option for patients with ocular surface disease such as corneal ulcers, Herpes Simplex Keratitis, Herpes Zoster Keratitis, and severe dry eye. Most importantly, Dr. Blazek is passionate about providing personalized, friendly, comprehensive eye care to all who sit in her exam chair. Dr. Blazek currently resides in Camby with her husband and four cats, Roxy, Rizzo, River and Roman. When she is not in the office, Dr. Blazek enjoys spending time with friends, family and her niece and nephew.
