Background: Refractive surgery is the most rapidly evolving issue in ophthalmology. In this study, we compared the effect of two phakic intraocular lenses, Artisan and Artiflex, in refractive surgery.Methods: In a prospective clinical trial studyd 58 eyes of 29 patients with high myopia were treated by phakic intraocular lenses. Artiflex lens was used in 24 eyes and Artisan lens in 34 eyes. Patients were followed up for 6 months. Uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA), best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) and refraction were assessed in both groups.Findings: Artiflex lens had better visual outcomes; but the difference with Artisan lens was only significant in first two months of follow-up. After 6 months, both groups had similar visual outcomes. Although astigmatism was greater in Artisan group in first three months, refraction in both groups was stable after 6 months and the results were not significantly different between the groups. Adverse reaction was not noticed.Conclusion: Artisan and Artiflex had similar long-term outcomes but refraction and vision establishment occur in a shorter period in Artiflex lenses.
