Doctors & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Lifetime Vision Source the leading provider of vision care products and services in Jamestown.
Dr. Tamara Mathison enjoys the challenge of finding the best solution for each individual patient’s visual demands. Having “perfect” 20/20 vision as a child and yet needing vision therapy to correct an eye muscle imbalance, Tamara understands that prescribing glasses to give clear vision is just one aspect of vision correction. Her goal is to help each patient achieve the best comfort and clarity of their vision while making sure their eyes stay as healthy as possible.
Tamara grew up in Bismarck, ND. After graduation, she attended Concordia College to pursue an undecided career in the health or education. She found her niche while finishing her secondary life science teaching degree when she worked with a student with learning and vision disabilities. Optometry offered the opportunity to work with both interests, healthcare and education! She earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from Pacific University in Forest Grove, OR. Tamara made Jamestown her home in 1990 when she joined the practice Dr. Keith Prentice and Dr. Don Caine. She has continued in that same practice which is now Lifetime Vision Source701.
Outside the office, Tamara’s passion is spending time in the kitchen, discovering and cooking new foods for family and friends. She also enjoys reading, gardening and camping at Lake Williams.
Dr. Larry Motacek employs a calming demeanor and problem solving expertise when helping patients with their eye care experience. He thrives in the “Eyecare Center of Excellence” environment at Lifetime Vision Source.
Larry earned his B.S in biology from the University of North Dakota, and then his Doctorate of Optometry from Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon. He then served as USAF optometrist in Omaha, Nebraska and Minot, North Dakota, and is a veteran of the first Gulf War. He joined Lifetime Vision Source in 1996 and has enjoyed the community pride and support of the Jamestown region.
Outside of the office, Larry enjoys fitness activities, golf, and biking with his wife and friends.
As a North Dakota native from Hazelton, ND, Dr. Briana Bohn is passionate about not only improving the eye health of her patients but also getting to know them and their families. Having worn glasses and contacts a majority of her life, she appreciates how vision affects all
areas of a person’s daily activities and strives to give her patients the highest quality of care.
Briana received her Doctor of Optometry degree from Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago, IL, giving her a unique experience but making her appreciate small-town North
Dakota that much more. She began her career in Optometry with Dakota Eye
Institute before joining Lifetime Vision at the end of 2017.
Briana resides in Jamestown, ND with her husband and their son. In her spare time she likes to bake, read, garden, (attempt to) sew, and various outdoor activities.
