National Eyecare Group

Established in 1979, The National Eyecare Group is the UK’s largest purchasing group for independent Opticians. With members from the tip of Scotland to the Channel Islands, The National Eyecare Group is dedicated to supporting the independent practitioner offering freedom of choice, while still maintaining preferential terms with the UK’s leading suppliers. Whatever the annual value of your purchases with the Group we will still offer the level of support your business requires.

Unlike other groups, there are NO membership fees or annual subscriptions, although there is a small management charge on purchases from some of our preferred suppliers, this should be more than offset by the level of improved discounts and savings on practice administration.

The National Eyecare Group members receive preferential purchasing terms from the UK’s leading suppliers including Tant and Lenstec. By working as a group our members receive terms that they wouldn’t be able to on their own, which in turn leads to greater profit for their business.

Our members also receive preferential terms from our IT division, Optinet Practice Management software, which offers a comprehensive practice management package including EDI ordering. In addition to the preferential terms, all purchases are listed on a monthly invoice/statement that requires only one payment each month, this simplifies practice administration, VAT returns and helps reduce bank charges.
