Von Miller Announces Von's Vision All Year Long Program

Denver Broncos Linebacker and former Super Bowl MVP Von Miller is announcing the launch of the Von’s Vision All Year Long Program. As part of this new outreach initiative, Miller is committing to place $1 million-worth of corrective eyewear on the faces of low-income students at three Denver-area schools over the course of the next 24 months.

The Von’s Vision All Year Long Program is an extension of the successful Von’s Vision Day Program that the Foundation has focused on the last three and a half years. Launched in 2014, Von’s Vision Day provides optical exams, screenings, and corrective eyewear to low-income children who otherwise could not afford it. To date, the Program has circulated 2,938 free pairs of glasses to in-need Denver students.

Originally designed to coincide with the return of students to the classroom after extended breaks, Von’s Vision Day occurs three times each year. With the advent of the Von’s Vision All Year Long Program, Miller will be able to assist children as their optical needs arise, thus expanding the reach of the Foundation. If corrective eyewear is deemed necessary, students are fitted for a pair of glasses free of charge. The school coordinator will take a student’s eye glass prescription and enter it in an online platform where the student can choose from multiple high-end frames to have their lenses made into. The platform will then fulfill the order and ship the completed eyewear to the school to distribute to the student. Miller is known for his style when it comes to his own personal eyewear. In addition to contributing glasses with corrective lenses, he hopes to provide the students with fashionable frames that mirror his sense of style, allowing them to feel cool and confident.

Miller, himself, has struggled with nearsightedness his entire life. The improved vision that his corrective eyewear has provided him has paved the way for a highly successful career in the NFL. Miller established his Foundation as a way use his platform and his own success story to deter the stigma of wearing glasses and to prove to young fans that they, too, can excel in the classroom and in life, even if their vision needs correction.

Studies show that 38% of American children need some form of vision correction. In Denver alone, over 27,000 public school students need vision correction but are unable to receive it due to their economic background. The inability to see properly creates extraordinary barriers for young children in the classroom. The launch of Von’s Vision All Year Long is an enormous step by Miller and his Foundation in the direction of eliminating vision-care barriers among low-income Denver families.

Founded in 2012, the mission of Von’s Vision is to provide low-income Denver children with the eye care and corrective eyewear they need to be their best in the classroom and in life.
