• An inexpensive and reliable fluid-gas exchange system has been developed for vitreous surgery. The system relies on a fishtank air pump and was compared with the Grieshaber Air System in several laboratory and operating room situations. No significant differences were found between the two systems. Details of the Davis Ocular Air Pump are provided along with a cost analysis.
