ⓘ Aphakia

Aphakia is the absence of the lens of the eye, due to surgical removal, such as in cataract surgery, a perforating wound or ulcer, or congenital anomaly. It causes a loss of accommodation, far sightedness, and a deep anterior chamber. Complications include detachment of the vitreous or retina, and glaucoma.

Children rarely are born with aphakia. Occurrence most Often results from surgery to remove congenital cataracts are the clouding of the lens of the eye that can block light from entering the eye and focusing clearly. Congenital cataracts usually develop as a result of infection of the fetus or genetic causes. It is often difficult to determine the exact cause of these cataracts, especially if affected only one eye.

People with aphakia have relatively small pupils and their pupils dilate to a lesser degree.
