The axis specifies the angle of the cornea curvature. This value ranges between 0° to 180° and determines in which angle the lens is inserted into the frame.
The cylinder of a lens corrects a cornea curvature (astigmatism). The strength of the cylinder value is given in dioptres with a negative sign.
The spherical value on your glasses pass shows the dioptre value. The term is derived from a sphere, the geometric term for a ball. Therefore, it is also shown symbolically with a small circle.

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.
Individual progressive lenses are personalised specifically for you and are therefore optimised. They are customised individually to your specific requirements and wearing habits. Far more individual parameters are incorporated into the manufacturing than for conventional lenses. They only take strengths into consideration for the lens according to a standard pattern. Individual progressive lenses such as Impression FreeSign® 3 are therefore customised for your eyes. A great variety of data about your face and the frame that you select are measured with our 3D measurement terminal and taken into consideration in the manufacturing of these lenses. This means even greater visual comfort and up to one-hundred percent exploitation of your vision potential.
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%.
Since we work together exclusively with specialised optical businesses, there is unfortunately no possibility to handle sales or repairs directly with you as the end consumer. Use our store locator to find a Rodenstock optician partner close to you. He will be happy to help you.

Our DNEye® Scanner automatically and
highly accurately measures high and low order aberrations for
far and near vision. The measurement is also dependent on the
pupil size. Far more data than usual is recorded so that you
can use 100% of your personal vision
Thanks to DNEye®, you simply see sharper and with higher contrast, which is noticeable at dusk in particular. The greatest comfort and the best compatibility make the vision experience perfect. Therefore, the Rodenstock EyeLT® concept quite simply means better vision.
See better. Look perfect.
