Von's Vision Welcomes Local Students for Inaugural 'College Vision Day'
Monday, April 15, 2019

DENVER (APRIL 15, 2019) – Von’s Vision, the charitable foundation of Denver Broncos’ Linebacker Von Miller, expanded its community outreach on Saturday afternoon when it held its first-ever ‘College Vision Day’ program at Vision Care Specialists’ downtown Denver offices, exclusively serving college-aged students in the area. Sixty-five students from the University of Denver and the University of Colorado Denver participated in the program, receiving no-cost vision screenings and eye examinations.

Vision Care Specialists, Von’s Vision’s trusted eye care partner, conducted the optometric services for the program. With numerous optometrists, opticians and other volunteers on site, Vision Care Specialists ensured that each student who registered for ‘College Vision Day’ received comprehensive screenings and, if necessary, a new pair of prescription glasses.

Saturday’s ‘College Vision Day’ program marks the first time that Von’s Vision has exclusively targeted college students in Denver as beneficiaries of its outreach services. Von’s Vision collaborated with the University of Denver’s Health & Counseling Center and the University of Colorado Denver’s Wellness & Recreation Services to register 65 students for the program. Appointments were offered between 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm and were reserved specifically for students receiving needs-based financial aid.

The need for accessible vision care at young ages is well documented. However, this need continues later on in life, especially for students who take on the burden of college tuition, room and board, and many other expenses. These financial constrictions serve as barriers and prevent students from receiving proper vision care. As a result, their ability to focus on studies is severely impacted.

Von’s Vision has identified this as an important community issue and has engaged in several community outreach efforts to address the need. Last March, Von’s Vision hosted its first-ever ‘Von’s Vision Day’ on the campus of Miller’s alma mater, Texas A&M University. This program served more than 270 students over the course of the three-day program.

‘College Vision Day’ precedes two more upcoming outreach programs, with ‘Von’s Vision Fest’ and the ‘Von’s Vision Day’ Reveal Party both taking place on April 30th at Mile High Stadium. In all, Von’s Vision has impacted upwards of 150 individuals in the past ten days.
