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.
A good sunglasses lens protects the eyes against UV
radiation, prevents bothersome glare, and maintains natural colour
contrasts. Sun protection lenses from Rodenstock offer all of this,
and are available in three series with different characteristics.
• SunProtect combines design and functionality in one sun
protection lens. The lenses provide optimum UV protection, are
available in stylish colours with and without a graduated tint – and
naturally also with your prescription! • Ideal for anyone
who still wants to have high-contrast vision despite the sun:
SunContrast filters 100% of the UV radiation and also the bulk of
the blue light radiation in daylight. They are particularly well
suited for places with many reflections, for example on a beach
holiday. They are available with your individual prescription.
• Polarised lenses filter out almost all bothersome light
reflections and make relaxed, fatigue-free vision possible. Besides
a great deal of visual comfort, this also gives you greater safety,
for example when driving a car or in outdoor sports. Of course, they
are also available with your prescription.
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.
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.
The overriding industry standards apply to lenses from all
manufacturers. However, they are not sufficient, because for the
System of Better Vision, exclusively high-quality materials and
precision manufacturing are used. For that reason, Rodenstock
developed its own standards that guarantee the highest quality in
every stage of development and production. This includes strict
material tests, extensive compatibility studies and quality tests
before each individual product is shipped. We offer everything from
a single source, from the research and development right up to
manufacturing the lenses.
In future, too, we’ll never lose sight of the essentials. Driven by our passion for purist design and an understanding of the perfect symbiosis between form and function, we don’t rely on trends but the power of timeless ideas. And so we look back over the last 40 years, full of pride and full of ideas for the future. Guided by the vision of creating unique glasses with a clear, unmistakable signature. For people with aspiration and a sense for aesthetic products – for followers of the Porsche Design Lifestyle.
