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)
