Who We Are

The Daybreak Vision Project is a non-profit organization, a community and a movement. Our mission is to bring sight-restoring cataract surgery to those in greatest need. Daybreak describes the moment light first penetrates the darkness of night. For us, this name represents the moment when a previously-blind patient first realizes their sight has been restored. This daybreak moment is pure joy and its impact is impossible to quantify. In an instant, sight, life, and hope have all been restored.
