About Our Doctors
Meet the experienced and friendly doctors who help make Berthoud Vision for Life! the leading providers of vision care products and services in Berthoud.
Wm. Rex Eland, O.D.
Dr. Rex Eland completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado Denver before attending the Southern California College of Optometry in Fullerton, California. After graduating Cum Laude in 1979, he returned to his home state and practiced in Longmont for over thirty years. Dr. Eland and his family moved to the Berthoud area in 1995. He bought Berthoud Vision Center ten years later (in 2005) and renamed it to Berthoud Vision for Life! shortly after. He loves the small-town charm of the area and enjoys serving the fine people of Northern Colorado with their vision care needs.
Dr. Eland belongs to several professional organizations, including the American Optometric Association, the Colorado Optometric Association, and the Northern Colorado Optometric Society. He specializes in computer vision disorders as well as difficult-to-fit contact lenses, such as bifocals and astigmatism correction. Having experienced the miracle of Laser Vision correction himself, Dr. Eland performs pre-op and post-op procedures in conjunction with the professionals at InSight Lasik Center. He takes seriously his charge to enhance the lives of others by preserving perhaps the greatest gift next to life itself–one’s vision.
Dr. Eland and his wife, Becky, have four children–Emily, Brad, Justin, and Summer, who all graduated from Berthoud High School. He is actively involved in his church and loves teaching all age levels. In his spare time, Dr. Eland enjoys clogging, cooking, and gardening.
Dr. Corey D. Pratt, O.D.
Dr. Pratt completed his undergraduate studies at Brigham Young University before attending Southern California College of Optometry, where he graduated summa cum laude in 2006. He then completed a residency in primary care with emphases in contact lens fitting and disease management at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Salt Lake City, UT.
A northern Colorado native, Dr. Pratt was anxious to return after his residency and has been working in the area since early 2008. He was excited to join Berthoud Vision for Life! this past year. He enjoys meeting and working with people of all ages and finds it very rewarding to help his patients achieve their best possible vision. He has a special soft spot for kids and has spent a good deal of his practicing time helping them with their visual disorders.
Dr. Pratt belongs to the American Optometric Association and the Colorado Optometric Association.
When not in the office, Dr. Pratt is a volunteer teacher for high school juniors and seniors in religious courses. He also enjoys hiking, fishing, and playing classical music on the piano. Dr. Pratt recently married his sweetheart, Katie, and the couple currently live in Loveland, but are looking to move to Berthoud in the near future.
