A company that had recently imported a stock of cataract lenses that were subsequently rejected, has secured a fresh Tender to import another 70,000 lenses, reports say.

The previous stock imported by the company – PTC Holdings (Private) Limited, was rejected as the lenses had lacked the required specifications.

They company has bid to provide a cataract lens at Rs. 9,000 to the Medical Supplies Division (MSD) of the Health Ministry. A cataract lens obtained by the Osu Sala costs around Rs. 30,000, reports add.

It is also learnt that the MSD is being increasingly pressured to accept the rejected stock of lenses, which has been imported from India. However, in a backdrop of the case concerning the controversial procurement of substandard human immunoglobulin vials, MSD officials are reluctant to do so.
