pseudoexfoliation
A condition simulating exfoliation in some respects, but in which the surface layer is not actually detached.
- p. of lens capsule deposition in all parts of the eye, including the lens capsule, of a material derived from basement membranes. If this material clogs the trabecular meshwork, impeding the outflow of aqueous humor from the eye, glaucoma may result. See exfoliation syndrome, pseudoexfoliative glaucoma.
