Aphakia is an eye related disorder in which the natural lens coating of the eye (which helps to guard the eyeball from external threats) is absent. This condition usually occurs due to external activities like an eye surgery or dislocation of the lens of the eye due to a sudden shock or trauma. People having this condition generally tend to have relatively smaller pupil sizes and their pupils do not dilate up to a great extent. The suggested cure for the condition are glasses, artificial contact lenses, or surgery.
