Abstract

Purpose: To compare and evaluate the efficacy of correction of astigmatism in sutured Vs sutureless glue free conjunctival autograft in pterygium surgery. Methods: Prospective observational study done in 24 eyes. Excision of the pterygium done under peribulbar anaesthesia. In 12 eyes (A) sutureless glue free conjunctival autograft and in the rest 12 eyes (B) sutured conjunctival autograft was performed. K readings are noted pre and postoperatively. Results: High statistically significant difference was noted between pre and post op values of K1 in both groups (A p=0.004) (B p=0.009), change in average K postoperatively was significant in both groups (A p=0.004) (B p=0.015). Conclusions: There was no statistically significant difference in correcting astigmatism between the two groups. Sutureless and glue free conjunctival autograft technique is equally easy, safe, effective method with better acceptance as patient comfort is more and cost of surgery is low.
