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.
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%.
The trademark "R" on lenses from
Rodenstock indicates to you that you have an original product from
Rodenstock, which complies with the highest technical and functional
Besides the brand engraving, the
lenses also have a so-called function engraving. The optician needs
this for optimum alignment of the lens in front of the eye, and for
clear correlation of the lenses. However, the engraving cannot be
seen under normal light conditions.
ColorMaticIQ® are self-tinting lenses from Rodenstock.
They adjust by themselves to any light situation in record time.
Whether in sunshine, glaring artificial light, shade or at dusk, the
ColorMaticQ® lenses darken or lighten depending on the surroundings.
To you, this means relaxed and reliable vision in any light with
just one pair of glasses.
Unfortunately not. Lenses are not just one pane of glass
or plastic, rather a complex system of layers for antireflection,
tinting and other additional functions. Therefore
"polishing out" scratches doesn't work.
Scratched glasses should be replaced soon. The micro-fine scratches
cause light to scatter. The eye has to correct constantly which
leads to fatigue. Headaches may be the consequence.
And it has been for 140 years. Only Rodenstock is a
manufacturer of lenses as well as frames. The benefits are
right in front of your eyes: an individually matched combination of
perfect design and premium materials. A blend of experience and
innovation, of timelessly modern shapes, perfect fit and first-class functionality.
