DENVER, Dec. 02, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Von Miller may be calling Los Angeles home for now, but Von’s Vision continues to serve children here in Denver. The Von’s Locker program, in partnership with Adventure Vision, has appointments available on December 8, 9, 15 and 16, 2021 for uninsured children. Eye exams have never been more important for kids than in the digital learning environment that accelerated in 2020. In addition, we know that many children lost their insurance due to family job changes and the pandemic, so the gap between those with state-sponsored coverage like Medicaid and privately insured people has grown.
“Access to care is an ongoing issue that our partnership with Von’s Vision works to resolve. No child should go without the care they need to be successful in life and in the classroom. By hosting Von’s Locker appointments at our practices, we also provide a vision home for kids and make sure that they get follow up and ongoing care they need,” Dr. Michael Pharris, Optometric Clinical Director, Adventure Vision
Parents can call one of the practices listed below to request an appointment.
December 8 & 9, 2021 – Adventure Vision, 6695 W. Colfax Ave., Lakewood, CO 80214; 720-805-9370
December 15 & 16, 2021 – Adventure Vision, 1407 W. 84th Ave., Suite 8, Denver, CO 80260; 720-909-3611
