Dr. Nevada Sweeney attended the University of Lethbridge where she earned her undergraduate degree with distinction in general science, before going on to earn her Doctor of Optometry at Pacific University in 2016. As part of her degree, Dr. Sweeney rotated through the US VA Hospital in Tacoma WA, Pacific Cataract and Laser Institute in Vancouver, WA, and Portland, OR area family eye clinics. During her time at Pacific University, she also participated in an eye care mission trip to Nicaragua.
After graduation, she became the senior optometrist at an ophthalmology clinic in Idaho for 4 years before relocating back to Canada in 2020. She fell in love with the Kootenays after her parents retired nearby, and has been extremely excited to make the Trail area her home.
Dr. Sweeney relishes all aspects of primary eye care, but has a particular interest in treating and managing ocular disease.
Outside of work, Dr. Sweeney enjoys photography and spending time with her husband and 4 children; skiing, snowboarding, camping, hiking and soaking up all of the beauty that the Kootenays has to offer. She is accepting new patients and would love to see you and your family at the Trail Vision Care Clinic.
