pseudophakia of the eye.?


What is the meaning of pseudophakia?
----------

Ok. Let's break the word apart.

Pseudo means false or pretending to be somethig it is not.

Phakia means the condition of having a lens in the eye.

So, pseudo--phakia means having a lens in the eye BUT it isn't your own normal lens. It is a man made lens that has been implanted during cataract surgery to replace the lens the surgeon has removed.  (+ info)
