LVT + Daybreak


Each year, LVT sponsors multiple Daybreak Vision Project trips to countries in Africa. LVT employees and their families volunteer for 10–14 days to help Daybreak’s doctors and nurses complete hundreds of surgeries each trip. Even though each surgery costs as little as $25, it can make all the difference to the recipient.

How Cataracts affect Daily life

The impact of Outreach

Cataracts are cloudy patches on the eye's lens, primarily affecting older adults. They can lead to blurry or foggy vision and potential blindness if untreated. They develop due to aging, injuries, diabetes, and other factors like ultraviolet light exposure, malnutrition, trauma, and genetics. Treatment involves surgically removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear one through a quick and inexpensive procedure lasting about 10 minutes.

Beyond vision loss, cataracts impact life expectancy, poverty rates, and relationships. Access to cataract surgery significantly improves quality of life.

It's why we support Daybreak Vision Project in their mission to restore sight to those suffering from cataracts. Through Daybreak Vision Project, LVT has been able to witness firsthand how critical the gift of sight is to the health, family, and future of patients in Africa and around the world.

"After my surgery, my vision was something out of this world. Everything was bright and clear, and I was happy, joyful, and thankful. It was not only I who benefited from the surgery, but also the hundreds I saw around me. The workers of LVT/Daybreak Vision project were so loving and patient, hugging and helping these people. Thank you for allowing me to see again!"

“What an experience to literally watch hundreds of people in an instant receive their sight. I was hooked! I subsequently volunteered for outreaches in Ethiopia and currently in Ghana. I am thrilled every time I get to go and experience the miracle of sight. And now gathering the stories of the patients who come to receive this miracle of sight is truly one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.”

“The impact of cataract surgeries in Zambia was life-changing for patients, medical staff, and volunteers. Each morning, "patch removal" brought overwhelming joy as patients regained sight, creating unforgettable moments of elation. Departing from Mongu, the Lewanika Hospital staff eagerly sought Daybreak Vision Project t-shirts, symbolizing their pride and connection to the transformative initiative.”

“Experiencing the moment when a person can see again after being blind for years is incredible. Cataract surgery seems so simple, but it changes the lives of so many people. When a parent gains their sight back it means their kids can go back to school, and it has a lasting effect on many generations. I'm grateful for the opportunity to help the people in Zambia, and I'm proud of LVT for putting so much support behind such an important cause.”
