Recording surgical procedures is of value for teaching and training in residency and fellowship programs. Operating external ophthalmic surgeries is not as easy as recording intraocular surgeries. In this communication, we describe the use of a video recorder mounted on a flexible tripod (Gorillapod®), a commonly available photography accessory; which is fixed to an IV fluid stand. This set up was used to record external ophthalmic surgeries and the recorded videos were of high quality in terms of stability and required no change in surgical technique to ensure that the area of interest was in focus. In our experience, early results show that a flexible tripod offers an economical mount for recording external surgeries with reproducible results.
