Aim: To study postoperative outcome & related complications of Glue free and suture free conjunctival autograft in pterygium excision in Haryana-A North Indian state. Materials and Method: The present study was conducted at the Department of Ophthalmology, MMIMSR, Mullana (Maharishi Markandeshwar Deemed to be University) in the time period extending between December 2017 and January 2019. 50 eyes of patients of either sex with primary pterygium were selected and pterygium was excised & sutureless & glue free conjunctival autograft was done with patient’s own blood fibrin. Parameters such as mean operating time, presenting complaints, grade, complications & recurrence were observed on postoperative Day 1, Day7, 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 month, 3 month & 6th month. Results: The mean age of the study population was 48.82 + 11.13 years... Out of 50 eyes only 1 (2%) had conjunctival cyst, 2 (4%) graft edema and 3 (6%) had graft displacement, 1(2%) had graft lost, 1(2%) had graft rejection & 1(2%) had recurrence at 6 month follow up. The mean operation time was 24.88 minutes. Regarding type of the pterygium, out of 50 patients 9(18%) were grade 1, 26(52%) were grade 2, 11(22%) were grade 3 and 4(8%) were grade 4. Conclusion: Conjunctival autograt using patients own blood technique is a safe, cheaper, effective, with less surgical time & has minimal postoperative discomfort.
