Do your glasses get fogged up and splattered in the rain?

Are your eyeglasses getting in the way of playing sports?

Want to reinvent your look?

If you’ve been diagnosed with nearsightedness, farsightedness, or even astigmatism, contact lenses are a great choice to help you see clearly. Contacts offer a full field of focused vision wherever you look. Because they move with your eyes, they allow you track moving objects with sharp and clear and peripheral vision.

Hill Country Vision Center - Evers Rd. will help you find the perfect contact lenses for your needs and lifestyle.

  • They’re great for sports and the outdoors

    Contacts offer a clear, wide field of vision, so that you can keep your eye on the ball, no matter where it is.

  • They provide visual comfort like never before

    Today’s contact lenses are made from a wide range of comfortable, breathable materials, ensuring a great wearing experience.

    From monthly-wear contacts, daily disposables and multifocal/bifocal to colored lenses and toric lenses, contacts can fit every need and lifestyle!

    Contact lenses won’t get wet in the rain or fog up when you wear a mask. Enjoy the freedom, comfort and convenience of contacts on a night out, when exercising, or just an ordinary day at the office.

What to Expect at Your Contact Lens Exam & Fitting in Inner West Side

  • Eye doctor consultation

    During your contact lens exam, your eye doctor will ask you about your medical history and discuss any lifestyle or health considerations you may have. Do you have astigmatism or dry eye syndrome? Seeking colored contact lenses? Are you over 40 and struggling to read small print in books and menus? No matter the issue, we'll make sure you get the perfect contacts for your needs.

  • Get your contact lenses fitted

    Poorly fitted contacts can cause blurry vision, discomfort and may even damage the cornea. To ensure you have the most comfortable fit possible, your eye doctor will take measurements and run tests to find the right contact lens for you.

  • Receive your trial pair of contact lenses

    Once your eye doctor has determined the optimal lenses for your needs and eyes, they will often offer you a trial pair. Once you’re satisfied with the comfort and clarity of vision these contacts provide, you can buy as many contact lenses as you need for ultimate comfort and clear vision.

I can't say enough wonderful things about our experience at Hill Country Vision Center this morning.... My mom had an ugly style and warm compresses just weren't doing the trick. Thankfully there was availability to be seen this morning. Titia, the technician that got my mom ready to see the doctor was so kind and patient as she gathered all the needed info. Dr Aguilera went above and beyond, utilizing available tools and adapting his exam to ensure that my mom sat comfortably in her wheelchair. We were educated about her diagnosis, treatment, and preventative measures, and prescribed medication. If you are looking for an optometry office who is thorough amd who cares about their patients, look no further.

I was a bit nervous, however the technician that assisted me with my eye pictures was very encouraging, which helped me to relax.

I’ve been going to Hill Country Vision -Palys & Associates for the past 10 years. I’ve had the o... pportunity to be seen by all the Dr.s that work here and they’re all amazing, including the assistants/techs. Dr. Zuercher specifically has been my optometrist these past 4 years. She is everything you’d want your optometrist to be. She is kind, patient, extremely knowledgeable, great at explaining, and answers all my questions and concerns. I can tell she genuinely cares about all her patients and is always welcoming. I highly recommend her to all my friends and family that are looking for an optometrist. Lynette is amazing. I had the privilege of being helped by her after my most recent exam. She helped me optimize my vision insurance benefits and went above and beyond to help me finally get glasses after 7 years of only being able to afford contacts with my insurance. She and this whole team are rockstars!

Great place

I truly enjoy Dr Agnes Palys' thorough exams and attention to detail regarding my annual eye-exam. ... My eyes are of the utmost importance to me which is why I have been going to see Dr Palys for the last 19+ years! Also, the lady technicians are very knowledgeable in the selection of covered and non-covered glass and frame options which allows me to decide if I want to splurge or stay within the allowed budget. To date, its been a most pleasant experience for me!

Contact Lens FAQs

Can children wear contact lenses?

Yes. Contact lenses can be an excellent vision correction option for children. There’s no specific age recommendation for children to start wearing contacts. Rather, parents should assess when their child is mature enough to properly care for them. Proper storage, cleaning and hygiene when inserting and taking out contact lenses are all essential for successful contact lens wear.

Can I wear contact lenses if I have astigmatism?

Yes. Toric lenses are a specific type of contact lens specially designed to address issues connected to astigmatism. In most cases, those with astigmatism can wear their choice of soft contact lenses, including monthly and daily disposables.

Are contact lenses comfortable?

Yes. Original hard contact lenses used to be quite difficult to adapt to. However, thanks to technological advancement, today's contacts are more breathable and comfortable than ever before. In most cases, soft contact lenses are easy to adapt to, even from the very start.

Why might daily disposable lenses be right for me?

Daily disposable lenses are a good choice for those who enjoy the convenience of throwing out used contacts each night, and inserting a new pair in the morning. This saves money, since there is no need for contact lens solution or a case to keep the lenses in. It also ensures that no debris has accumulated on the lenses overtime, since you insert a new one every day.

Why might monthly-wear contact lenses be right for me?

Monthly-wear lenses are great for those responsible enough to take good care of their lenses according to their eye doctor’s instructions. They tend to be made of sturdier material than daily-wear lenses, meaning they don’t tear as easily. The material also lets in more oxygen to the eye, preventing serious complications that can harm your long-term eye health. They are also more eco-friendly (think one lens per month vs. thirty) and are less expensive up-front.
