How Will You Use Google Glass?

The day that you've all been waiting for is here! Google  Glass is finally available to the general public. Many of you have been signing up and waiting to finally purchase the newest technology on the market offered by Google, while New Jersey's triple board certified top-plastic surgeon Dr. Ramtin Kassir has been  incorporating this visionary device into his New Jersey practice. With the command of his voice, pictures of patients are taken, and surgeries are live-streamed. 

“Rather than handing patients a mirror, I record and display their faces in real-time on a projection screen in my office. My patients can go home and review their entire surgical procedure, consultation, and their medical records are readily available,” says Dr. Kassir.

Here is Dr. Kassir's review of Google Glass:

  • Wearing Google Glass throughout the day is not a problem, they come in different shades and prescription lenses
  • Colleagues, staff, families and patients overwhelmingly have a positive response to Glass
  • Increase efficiency- beneficial applications of Glass include: hands-free photo/video-documentation (especially letting patients see their own conditions real time), hands-free telephone calls, looking up billing codes, and internet searches for unfamiliar medical terms or syndrome
  • Low battery endurance, and some transmission latency
  • Improvement to the hardware is required- primarily battery life and issues of data protection

“I love that I can go home and review everything from my initial consultation to my surgery," says a New Jersey facelift patient.
