High myopia has been found to be visually debilitating and affects day-to-day activities of the individual. Aim: This study aimed to analyze the efficacy and visual outcomes of posterior chamber phakic intraocular lens-refractive implantable lens (RIL) in high-myopia patients. Methods: This prospective study was conducted in a tertiary care center during February 2017–February 2018. Results: This study included 50 eyes of 34 patients, which showed 82% of eyes had uncorrected visual acuity equal or better than preoperative best-corrected visual acuity and 52% eyes had visual acuity of 6/6. No incidence of cataract was observed in this study. Conclusion: Refractive results after RIL implantation are found to be safe and satisfactory and has favorable visual outcome.
