The hydraulic flow conductivity of rabbit and bovine vitreous gel has been measured by a method that gives better results than the one previously used. The vitreous gel has a hydraulic flow conductivity that would be expected for a highly hydrated connective tissue. The "pore" size (the spaces availabel for water flow) are estimated to be about 4,000 A in diameter.
