The prototype for eye surgery is the first prototype for vitrectomy surgery developed in Ecuador. It is useful for the learning and training of Ophthalmologist Surgeons in the skills of the vitrectomy surgery. This project was designed and developed with materials of easy acquisition in the local market and standard accessories that accomplish the requirements of a vitrectomy surgery and reduce the cost of surgeries, so that more people can access to surgeries especially poor people. The prototype has 4 systems: cut system, aspiration system, infusion system and illumination system. It can cut and aspirate the vitreous (jelly structure that fills the ocular cavity and can not be regenerated), illuminate the eye cavity through an endoilluminator probe and enter salt solution inside the eye to replace the extracted vitreous.
