Aim: Cyanoacrylate synthetic glue is an instant acting adhesive material often used for household, biomedical and industrial requirements. Accidental instillation of glue into eyes seems to be the commonest mode of chemical eye injuries especially in the paediatric and geriatric population. Methods: A series of five cases of synthetic glue eye injuries following accidental instillation into eyes that presented to our hospital were reported. Results: All the cases were managed conservatively as per the current guidelines with good visual outcome. Conclusion: These case series highlight how even daily activities utilizing the superglue may result in unexpected serious eye injuries. Creating awareness and provision of immediate medical aid can prevent ocular morbidity in such eye injuries.
