In Memory of Dr. David Sweeney
Dr. David Sweeney’s legacy lives on through his wife, his four children, his family, his staff, his patients, and his life’s work at Vision Source InSight Eyecare.
Dr. David Sweeney was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and moved to Toronto, Canada at the age of six. Dr. David obtained a Bachelor of Science Degree from Queen’s University in Kingston Ontario in 1984 and went on to further his education by completing his Doctor of Optometry Degree from the New England College of Optometry in Boston in 1997.
Dr. David and his beloved wife, Dr. Rachael, developed a practice that allowed him to share his passion for his patients and provide the highest level of care, surrounded by incredible staff. At Vision Source InSight Eyecare he focused on low vision patients, myopia management, and restoring vision through specialty contact lenses.
It is with immense sadness that Vision Source InSight Eyecare announces the peaceful passing of Dr. David Sweeney at his home in Atlanta, Georgia on September 16th, 2021. He was surrounded by his immediate family, sister, and a family friend Melora, after a hospital stay associated with his recent diagnosis of pancreatic cancer.
He was a gentle, warm, caring, and learned man with a deep devotion and love of family. He was a dedicated, friendly, and talented optometrist, and a shrewd tactician and steely competitor in the sport of sailing at which he excelled. Dr. David will be remembered for his kind heart, generosity, dedication, determination, and the goofy, playful antics that made him such an amazing Dad.
