Feasibility study of a device allowing recording, transmission and viewing by another operator of a stereoscopic clinical examination at the slit lamp.
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.
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.
The success of this experience of telemedicine and augmented reality offers significant opportunities in the fields of education and remote consultation.
