It's not every day you get to witness a moment as special as this.

Daniel was blind and hadn't seen his wife's face in over 21 years. What's even more heartbreaking is that he'd never had the opportunity to look upon his daughter's face.

But thanks to the wonders of medical advancement, Daniel was able to have a cornea transplant, enabling him to see again for the first time in 21 years.

In the above video, as the doctor pulls her hand away from his eyes, a wide-eyed Daniel blinks and the biggest grin sweeps across his face.

"Come here so I can see you up close," he says to his wife and daughter.

Then - in what is the sweetest thing ever - he turns to take in his daughter's face for the first time and says: "You are more beautiful than I ever could've imagined."
