In brief: Cataract surgery
When a cataract is removed from the eye, an artificial lens, also known as an intraocular lens is put in to replace the focusing power. This device is also known as a pseudophake (false lens) as it is not the natural lens.
So an eye after cataract surgery is said in some cases to contain a pseudophake.

In brief: Cataract surgery
Pseudophakia means that a person has had cataract surgery with the nature lens of the eye removed and an artificial lens implanted in the eye to replace it.
This is the way that most cataract surgeries have been done for the last 25 years.
