Our Physician

Dr. Aashish V. Gandhi
“I feel honored in caring for patients and helping save their vision. My goal is to provide the best possible retinal treatment to prevent loss of sight, while clearly explaining the retinal condition and offering hope.”

Dr. Gandhi grew up in New York City, and decided to become an ophthalmologist after witnessing the significant improvement in vision and functional ability in his grandfather following cataract surgery. He attended Bronx High School of Science in New York and graduated from Cornell University, cum laude. Medical school at New York University School of Medicine was followed by an Ophthalmology residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center in New York, where he was chief resident. He completed a surgical fellowship in Vitreo-Retinal Diseases at Ochsner Clinic and Hospital in New Orleans.

Dr. Gandhi is a Board-certified ophthalmologist, a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the American College of Surgeons, and is a member of the American Society of Retina Specialists. Dr. Gandhi has helped serve the needs of patients with vitre-retinal diseases in east central Illinois since 1998.

If not seeing patients or doing retinal surgery, Dr. Gandhi enjoys spending time with his wife and two teenage children. His interests include photography, reading and travel.
