Von's Vision

Posted Apr 14, 2014

Linebacker Von Miller's dream to provide underprivileged children with corrective eyewear came to fruition Monday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Von Miller's vision has come true.

His foundation, aptly named Von's Vision, was created in 2013 to help provide eye care and corrective eyewear to underprivileged children.

On Monday at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, Miller was on hand to see that dream come to fruition.

"It's incredible," Miller said. "From it just being a thought for my foundation to getting a great group of guys that helped push the vision and helped make it happen, to see all these kids and be able to do something and give them glasses, it's incredible."

More than 100 children from Boys & Girls Clubs throughout Denver were at the event to receive their new glasses.

Von's Vision Day was divided into two parts. First, 160 children were given eye exams. As it turned out, 104 of them needed glasses -- a surprising number to Miller and everyone else in his foundation.

"It was a huge surprise -- 160 kids, 104 needed glasses and didn't even know they needed glasses," he said. "That could be the game-changer in the classroom. That could help propel their lives from here on out. It all starts young when you start getting those study habits."

Those children were able to pick out their frames on the first Von's Vision Day, and then the foundation spent a month filling their prescriptions. On Monday, the reveal portion of Von's Vision Day meant many of those children would receive glasses for the first time in their lives.

Even more than that, they got to tour the Broncos' home stadium, spend time in the visitors' locker room, listen to music and enjoy a pizza party.

And Miller was there to thank them for coming and wish them well with their new frames.

"To see all you guys here, it's overwhelming," he told the kids. "I hope you guys like your glasses. I hope you look cool in them."

And the Pro Bowl linebacker hopes it's just the tip of the iceberg. His foundation's goal is to provide eye exams and corrective eyewear to more than 50,000 children by the end of 2016.

"To have my vision come to reality like this, it's overwhelming," Miller said. "I can't even put it into words how it makes me feel. Especially through all the stuff that has been going on, to still be able to do stuff in the community and do some positive, it's great. I feel truly blessed."
