What is Aphakia?
The absence of the lens from the eye. Aphakia may be congenital (present from birth), may result from surgery (for example cataract surgery), or may be due to penetrating injury.
Aphakia causes severe loss of focusing in the affected eye and requires correction by implanting a lens or with contact lenses or glasses.
