Acetate A plastic material consisting mainly of
cotton, which is available in innumerable shades of colour. We
exclusively use high-quality acetate that is absolutely skin
friendly. It is used for the fronts and sides, because it is very
light and can be adjusted individually by heating it slightly.
Vision deteriorates in the near range with increasing age,
and books or letters have to be read with your arm extended. The
ageing process of the eye is responsible for this and the
deteriorating elasticity of the lens that goes along with it.
Progressive glasses are suitable for
compensating for presbyopia for smooth, clear vision at all
distances. At your workplace, you will benefit from special computer
glasses with Ergo® near comfort lenses.
The easiest and most gentle way to clean your spectacles
is with some washing up liquid under running water. Afterwards, the
best thing is to rub the glasses with a microfiber cloth.
Please don't rub them with a T-shirt or paper
tissue. Scratches cannot be removed from plastic or mineral glass
lenses. Even if the flaw seems to be only cosmetic, light is
scattered by the micro-fine scratches, which irritates the eye.
Your glasses would really appreciate intensive cleaning
every 6 months by your Rodenstock optician partner. Just a few
minutes in an ultrasound bath is enough to cause lenses and the
frame to shine with their former glory.
Mineral glass was considered to be the premium material
for manufacturing lenses for a long time. However, times change.
Today, lenses are made almost exclusively of high-tech plastics,
which are superior to mineral glass in almost all ways.
Lenses made of plastic are lightweights and can be
manufactured very thin. That increases the aesthetics and wearing
comfort for the glasses wearer. In addition, plastic lenses are
absolutely clear, robust and the colour is stable.
The hinges of glasses may indeed seem to have an
inconsiderable affect, but as the only moving part in the glasses it
fulfils two important tasks: First of all it provides the connection
between the front of the glasses and the sides. The higher the
quality of the manufacturing of the spring, the more reliable and
longer lasting the entire spectacles. Secondly, the glasses hinge is
decisively responsible for wearing comfort. Only if it is designed
to be flexible and durable at the same time, does it make it
possible to adjust the glasses to fit your head perfectly. The
premium hinges from Rodenstock guarantee all of these
characteristics. They are tested extensively for permanently good
hinge movement, high adjustability and maximum durability.
It is short for Eye Lens Technology: EyeLT® is a new
technology in Rodenstock's lens manufacturing that has
been registered for a patent. Something that was considered to be
undoable has been possible since 2011 thanks to EyeLT®: up to 40%
better near vision for people who wear progressive glasses – a
milestone in the history of progressive lens technology.
The optician carries out a special near vision
test with the customer for this. The eye is measured completely
automatically and with high precision with the DNEye® Scanner, a new
and innovative measuring device. Together with the results of the
regular eye measurement, all this additional information is sent
with the order to Rodenstock and we make the best possible lens from
it. In short, the glasses wearer can exploit his individual vision
potential by 100%.
It was first seen in the 60s, and then suddenly disappeared
like it was swallowed up by the earth, and rocco by Rodenstock
returned to the scene in 2014. In a retro design and wrought with
ultramodern materials, the eyewear are mainly something for
trendsetters and the fashion conscious. The yellow rocco circle is
the typical distinctive mark and gives a each pair of glasses an
individual dab of colour.
