The list is regularly updated to ensure that the products are relevant, appropriate and up-to-date. We are always looking for new innovative and affordable technologies in eye health. You can help.

Do you have direct experience with a product? Contact us by email.


While the items on the list are chosen for their quality, IAPB can accept no responsibility for specific items. The list of suppliers is provided to help in obtaining information. It is not comprehensive and other suppliers are available. The prices quoted are approximate and do not included shipping costs. Orders for items on the list should be sent direct to the suppliers/vendors.

The IAPB Valued Supplier Scheme uses “Guide Price” for some of the products. A variety of pricing mechanisms are used in different markets and locations—RRP, RSP, List price etc. To ensure some consistency, IAPB uses a Guide price that is indicative of the price-range to expect for a product.

However, a number of Valued Suppliers have decided, due to the nature of being open source not to display their prices – where this is the case POA (price on application) will be displayed.

To obtain a detailed price from the Valued Supplier, click on the Request a Quote button in the product, and complete and submit the form. The Valued Supplier will email you a quotation within a couple of days.
