My aunt has eye glasses that use fish line like that fit in the groove in the middle of the edge of lens. Was wondering if you could put glue in the groove like super glue to hold lens in place?

You could probably do that, but why bother.
If you are near a reputable eyeglass place they will do it for
and usually as a customer service for free.
My daughter is an optician for a major eyeglass chain and this kind of
thing is done everyday as a service for their customers. It is usually very easy adjustment.

Walmart fixed that type of glasses for my mother. Her regular optician refused to fix them and insisted she needed to buy new frames. We stopped at Walmart and the old frames were fixed in five minutes while we waited. I forget the cost, but it was very low.

You could but you could never use the frame again if you wanted to put new lens in them.

I had a pair that constantly lost the lens and almost drove me nuts . In desperation I wiped a very small amount of clear silicon along the bottom of the lens over the ' fishing line ' it never moved again . I only used these in the workshop but I see no reason why the lenses couldn't have been changed if needed .
