About us

At El Paso West EyeCare & Contact Lens Center, we're glad to provide all kinds of eye care services to the residents of El Paso, TX. They can come see us for anything from a regular eye exam to computer vision treatment to hard to fit contacts. We have an “optometrist near me” that is here to help. Here's a bit about us: 

Our Team

Dr. Joy A. Schmalzle and her experienced staff are ready to be of service. She is from South Korea and grew up in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania. Her background includes time as an Army Optometrist, and she even served in Iraq during The Surge. After 20 years in the Army, she retired in 2022.


You can come see us for a variety of things, including regular eye exams, contact lenses, LASIK surgery consultation, dry eye treatment, and more.

A lot of our patients spend time looking at computers, phones, or tablets. This can lead to something known as computer vision, with symptoms such as blurry vision, headaches, eye strain, and neck or shoulder pain. We can come up with a treatment plan so that the symptoms can be relieved and you can back to your life or work without interruption. Solutions include things you can do at home, like changing the angle of the computer and making sure that you have good lighting.

Our Eye Care

We know that people are busy, so we will make every attempt to accommodate your schedule. Our goal is to help the people of our community have the best vision possible. Talk with our staff and we will answer each question you have. Our eye doctor is here to help you get relief from your eye conditions and eye care to help you see better into the future.
