Purpose: Feasibility study of a device allowing recording, transmission and viewing by another operator of a stereoscopic clinical examination at the slit lamp.

Methods: Two medical cameras (CM900, Haag-Streit, Bern, Switzerland) were mounted on a slit lamp (BQ900, Haag-Streit, Bern, Switzerland) equipped with a beam splitter allowing to record stereoscopic videos. The video footage associated with the patient's clinical data were then remotely transmitted to another examiner located in another room via a secure server dedicated to telemedicine. The data was then visualized through augmented reality glasses type Oculus Rift DK2 (Oculus VR, California) for stereoscopic viewing of the recorded consultation.

Results: Five patients consulting for diseases of the anterior and posterior segments were examined remotely and the diagnosis was consistent with that of the first examiner in all cases.

Conclusions: The success of this experience of telemedicine and augmented reality offers significant opportunities in the fields of education and remote consultation.
