Providing low-income Denver children with the eye care and corrective eyewear they need to be their best in the classroom and in life.
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. According to recent data collected by Von’s Vision, 38% of children in the United States need some form of vision correction. Three out of every ten children under six years old have never been seen by an eye doctor for a variety of reasons. Von’s Vision will work to provide solutions to this problem through development of targeted and strategic impact and outreach programs.
