Abstract :

 Aim : evaluation of a new technique for pterygium surgery with respect to postoperative pain ,surgery time , transplant loss & recurrence rate . Methods: A prospective randomized study was carried out in 100 cases of primary pterygium . Conjunctival autograft or amniotic memane was used to cover the sclera after pterygium excision .In 50 cases the transplant was attached to sclera with Baxter glue and in 50 cases by sutures ( 8-0 vicryl ) . Postoperative pain was graded according to the visual analogue scale (V A S) twice daily during the first week after surgery. Surgery time, loss of transplant & recurrence rates were noted in the follow up period of 12 months. Results: The average pain, surgery time & recurrence rates were more in suture l cases where as transplant losses were only noted in glue cases.
