Areas covered

The Intraocular Lenses, Ophthalmic Packs, Instruments, Consumables and Equipment Framework offers both a wide range of products and suppliers. It encompasses products covering all clinical applications and technologies, providing choice and potential savings opportunities. The offering is flexible and incorporates new technologies and brand choice also allowing customers to order at low quantities to a wide variety of requisition points down to ward level.

Prices and savings

This framework also offers savings via bespoke regional pricing with the introduction of EDC-Gold onto this framework will reduce ordering time, barcode scanning and will eliminate discrepancies on the consignment banks within the trusts.


There are no standard prices for IOLs, typically the price of IOL is dependant upon volume, range and period of commitment. Prices are available on request from NHS Supply Chain via mini-competitions or pre-agreed pricing structures based on volume and/or product range requirements.

Devices and instruments

Pricing for devices and instruments are listed on the Online Catalogue. If you think you qualify for further discounts based on your volume requirements, please contact us for further information.

There is some cross over with our capital framework offering Phacoemulsification machines. Cataract procedures using a phacoemulsification machine require phaco procedure packs which are available via this framework. Phaco machines can also be issued free of charge, with the purchase amortised through the phaco procedure packs.

Pricing structures

We have been working to agree a pricing structure with contracted suppliers for IOLs and related consumables. If you know the exact product range and the volumes required, we can give you indicative pricing. Your requirements will then be sent to your chosen supplier, who will then agree pricing structures and start dates for your orders.

Mini competitions

This option is appropriate if you have a product specification and known annual volume with more than one supplier capable of meeting your requirements. NHS Supply Chain will then invite the relevant suppliers to take part in the process. The supplier(s) who achieve(s) the highest scores against the award criteria on the mini competition will be successful.

For further information please contact your NHS Supply Chain Account Manager.
