Can the original blind spot glass in the side mirrors be deleted and replaced with standard glass?

I have a 2013 Venza LE. This has been a fantastic vehicle, but I have one complaint.
The factory side mirrors have a small blind spot glass that is too small to provide a clear view and it obscures the view in the surrounding convex glass. Can this all be replaced with a full sized piece of convex glass?

    I’ll guess that any glass shop that also does automotive glass can manage this.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    Thank you for the reply.
    The issue is that the blind spot glass is a separate piece.
    I have found replacement glass panels on the internet, but I'm trying to determine if I can just pull the old insert(s) out and replace it with one solid panel.
    I'm not sure what the structure looks like behind the glass.

    That's why I suggested a glass shop. They know what it looks like, behind the glass.
