Dr. Gasperini is a board certified ophthalmologist specializing in the medical and surgical treatment of diseases of the retina and vitreous. She grew up in the rural Upper Peninsula of Michigan and received her Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology, Summa Cum Laude, from Michigan State University Honors College. She attended Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, Michigan, where she was awarded her medical degree and completed an internship in Internal Medicine. Thereafter, Dr. Gasperini went on to complete residency training in ophthalmology at the Kresge Eye Institute at Wayne State University, where she was elected co-chief resident. She completed a two year vitreoretinal surgery fellowship at the prestigious Doheny Eye Institute/ University of Southern California.

She is the principal investigator for clinical trials in their research department. Dr. Gasperini appreciates her patients and their families’ concerns and dedicates her time to properly educate them about ocular conditions and treatments options. Such emphasis on patient care has reflected in Health Care Partners Group Patient Satisfaction Award for an outstanding performance and exceptional commitment in 2011. Volunteering at local free vision screenings for homeless and low income families, such as those, organized by Illumination Foundation, Dr. Gasperini takes time to serve and better our community. Dr. Gasperini has been involved in a number of research studies involving retinal diseases, has authored and co-authored multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals, and continues to present at local and international scientific meetings. Currently, Dr. Gasperini presents on various subjects awarding continuous education to the doctors of optometry and ophthalmology in Torrance, Long Beach and Orange County.
