Denver, CO – (April 9, 2016) –
In the midst of a busy off-season, Super Bowl 50 MVP, Von Miller is making time to give back to the community. More than 70 volunteers gathered at Hellerstein & Brenner Vision Center, P.C. on April 9th to help give Denver children the gift of sight.

Saturday marked the 3rd annual Von’s Vision Day, a program of Von Miller’s foundation, Von’s Vision. The program provided screenings, eye exams, and if needed, corrective eyewear for children in the Denver area.

One child expressed his feelings about getting a new pair of glasses by saying, “I’m a nerd, but that’s okay because Von’s a nerd, too!”

Von’s Vision operates with the premise to not only give students the gift of sight, but a chance to better their future by directly impacting their ability to learn.

Studies have shown that more than 80 percent of information children receive in classrooms is presented visually—routine eye exams are essential for children to be ready to learn in school.

“If you can’t see, how do you learn in the classroom?” asked Jina Schaff, an Optometrist at Hellerstein & Brenner Vision Center, P.C. “We have kids who can’t even see the big E on the chart, at the end of the room, and we’re able to give them a pair of glasses. For these kids to have access to eye care that allows them to see, it’s a leg up.”

After screening and exams, children needing vision correction picked out a pair of designer frames and are invited back to the Von’s Vision Reveal Party to receive their new pair of glasses.

Von’s Vision Day could not be possible without a host of generous sponsors and volunteers.
