Abstract: Context Among various methods for pterygium surgery, Conjunctival autografting is a promising technique. Autoconjunctival graft can be placed over the cornea by sutures, fibrin glue and autologous blood. The present study was undertaken to analyse the results of sutureless pterygium surgery with and without glue and to provide us valuable data, postoperative results and complications. Aims To compare the results of sutureless pterygium surgery by autoconjunctival graft with and without glue. Subjects and methods 60 patients underwent pterygium surgery from June 2014 attending the Ophthalmology O. P. D and were divided in 30 each patients of with and without glue. The operated were evaluated for lid edema, graft edema, SCH, graft position, recurrence. Results The graft position was statistically significant in both the groups postoperatively, occurrence of subconjunctival haemorrhage was significant in the groups & Lid edema, graft edema and recurrence was not statistically significant. Conclusions Present study showed equally good both post-operative results of glueless and with glue conjunctival autografting, hence making the sutureless procedure without glue easier.
