Context: Scleral-fixated posterior chamber lens implantation (SF-PCIOL) in eyes without sufficient capsular support remains a widely applied surgical procedure. Suture - less scleral IOL fixation, Is a new technique in which PC IOL is placed in eyes with deficient posterior capsule and the haptics are incarcerated in the scleral pocket which is sealed with quick-acting fibrin glue.
Aims and Objectives: To evaluate the efficacy and feasibility of fibrin glue-assisted posterior chamber intraocular lens (IOL) implantation method in post cataract surgery.
Material and Methods: The study includes 10 Patients presented with inadequate capsular support who underwent Glue assisted SF-PCIOL over a time period of 12 months at a tertiary care eye hospital. Statistical analysis was done on Microsoft excel.
Results:In present study of ten eyes the final postoperative BCVA at 3rd month was improved or remained same in nine (90 %) patients and only one patient had reduced BCVA.
Conclusion: Lots of complications are encountered with the use of sutures in the operative procedures; bio-adhesives fibrin glue have emerged as a viable alternative for glue assisted suture less transscleral fixation of posterior chamber intraocular lens (SF- PCIOL), over the last three decades.

Keywords:Scleral-Fixated Posterior Chamber IOL (SF-PCIOL), haptics, Fibrin glue, Best Corrected Visual Acuity (BCVA)
