Title: GLASSES FOR USE IN SURGICAL PROCEDURES
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a pair of glasses for use during a surgical procedure, in particular, to a pair of glasses for use during surgical procedures that may record or transmit the images captured by the glasses. The glasses comprise a frame, a pair of lenses held in the frame, and a camera mounted to the frame, and a processor coupled to the camera. The camera is for viewing or recording a surgical procedure being performed. The camera has a field of view in the same direction as a field of view of the wearer of the glasses. The field of view of the camera is adjustable, which enabled to the correct viewing angle to be recorded or viewed by the glasses during the procedure. The field of view may be adjusted mechanically, using a moveable mount (either by hand or using motors), or digitally, where the image is processed by the processor to view or record the correct field of view of a larger image.
