A Google Glass application called EyeSight, made by Austin, Texas-based Pristine, allows medical practitioners to stream video and audio of wounds to physicians who can determine if they need to see the patient in person.

The app, which has undergone testing at the University of California at Irvine, will soon be used at Wound Care Advantage outpatient clinics in Southern California.
