Purpose: To report on the novel use of fibrin glue in the treatment of conjunctival resection for conjunctivochalasis.

Methods: A 78-year-old woman with bilateral, symptomatic conjunctivochalasis had a conjunctival resection by using fibrin glue, as a suture substitute, to attach the conjunctiva.

Results: The use of fibrin glue facilitated the surgical procedure, was well tolerated by the patient, and produced excellent results with relief of symptoms.

Conclusions: The use of fibrin glue during the conjunctival resection was effective in simplifying the procedure and theoretically decreased the risk of suture-related complications and the postoperative irritation related to the presence of sutures in situ.
