The recent introduction of Google Glass (Google), a wearable technology platform with an optical head-mounted display (see specifications in the eTable in the Supplement), is gaining popularity in the medical community.1,2 The device, worn like a pair of conventional glasses, incorporates a computerized central processing unit, touch pad, display screen, high-definition camera, microphone, and wireless connectivity. With the video camera lens positioned just above the viewer’s right eye, Glass enables real-time transmission of exactly what the user sees. Here we report our intraoperative experience using Glass to record scleral buckling surgery.
