Given what you’ve said, my hunch is you could make the query like this: 

    q={!prefix f=field_name}2016-10 

tada!  ?! 

there’s nothing wrong with indexing dates as text like that, as long as your queries are
performantly possible.   And in the case of the query type you mentioned, the text/string’ish
indexing you’ve done is suited quite well to prefix queries to grab dates by year, year-month,
and year-month-day.   But you could, if needed to get more sophisticated with date queries
(DateRangeField is my new favorite) you can leverage ParseDateFieldUpdateProcessorFactory
without having to change the incoming format.
