Every year 5,000 low-income 1st grade students enter the Denver Public School System without ever seeing an eye doctor. More than 1,900 of them need glasses. The Denver Public School System currently has more than 27,000 low-income students who need some level of vision correction. Von's Vision was formed on these statistics.

VON'S VISION DAY
Von's Vision Day has two parts. First, Von’s Vision partners with national and regional eye wear retailers to provide a city-wide vision day for low-income Denver children. Each child receives a free screening, and if needed, free eye exams and corrective eye wear. After the prescription glasses have been cut, Von hosts a Reveal Party where children are fitted for their glasses, personally delivered by Von.
VON MILLER'S BACK TO SCHOOL VISION DAY
Von’s Vision partners with optometrists, opticians, and retailers to provide school kids with eye exams and eyewear all in the same day. For one day, a Denver area school is transformed into a clinic where children can get screened, have an eye exam, shop for frames and walk out with new glasses in about an hour.
VON'S VISION - ALL YEAR LONG
"Von's Vision - All Year Long" launched in the fall of 2017 and provides free corrective eye wear to Denver-area children and students. In 2017, “Von’s Vision – All Year Long” will help more than 2,000 low-income Denver-area children and students.
