To evaluate a novel combination head-mounted/chest-mounted point-of-view recording system for oculoplastic surgical procedures. The point-of-view head camera captures the surgical field, while the point-of-view chest camera captures a wide field of view to record instrument ergonomics. Various methods of recording were trialed. The head camera with a narrow field of view was better for recording fine details of the surgical field. The chest camera recording a wide field of view was optimal for recording hand positions. Stereoscopic recording of the instrument ergonomics was helpful in relaying the relative positions of the surgeon's hands and instruments. Point-of-view cameras are cost-effective means of recording oculoplastics procedures. The authors feel simultaneously recording the surgeon's ergonomics and the corresponding instrument movements within the surgical field, from the "surgeon's view", will augment surgical education.
