Optimal vision up close, at a distance, and in the intermediate range with Rodenstock progressive lenses.
As the name suggests, a progressive lens provides progressive power, and infinitely variable sharp vision at all distances. Because progressive lenses are able to correct defective vision for far and near at the same time. As there is no visible edge in the lens and the power changes are not recognisable from the outside, progressive lenses also have aesthetic benefits.
When would a progressive lens be useful?
Our eyes change as we get older. This means that when we become middle-aged the eye lens is no longer quite as elastic. It becomes increasingly difficult for the eyes to switch between near and distance vision – the eyes need some assistance. Progressive lenses are the ideal solution here. Because with progressive lenses you don't have the annoying and inconvenient task of changing spectacles.Test your presbyopia

How your exact biometric progressive lenses are made
With biometric progressive lenses based on DNEye® technology, Rodenstock creates a paradigm shift in the calculation of progressive lenses by precisely determining the unique shape and size of each eye and taking it into account during production.More about B.I.G. EXACT™
Innovative eye measurement
With the DNEye® scanner, we measure your eyes at over 7,000 points. On this basis, we can calculate lenses that fit your eyes as perfectly as possible: exact biometric progressive lenses.
We call them B.I.G. EXACT™.
3D lens measurement
Via 3D video measurement of your face with the spectacle frame of choice, the ImpressionIST® calculates all important values to perfectly adjust the lenses to the spectacle frame and face shape.
Perfect bespoke manufacture
The actual trick now lies in creating individual spectacle lenses on the basis of the determined values. The calculation and production takes place at Rodenstock.
What should one bear in mind with progressive lenses?
Every eye is as unique as you are. How should an 'off-the-shelf' pair of spectacles meet your individual requirements? Thanks to the high-precision eye measurement with the Rodenstock DNEye® Scanner, we are able to measure all individual aberrations and take them into consideration when making the lenses. The result: You have sharper and higher-contrast vision than ever before - this is particularly noticeable at twilight. Superb comfort and optimal compatibility make the individual visual experience perfect.
Changing over to progressive lenses may take some getting used to. But with time, you have reliably trained your sight and can focus normally on the desired distance.
With bespoke progressive lenses from Rodenstock the acclimatisation period is very short, compared with traditional lenses, meaning you have pin-sharp vision at all distances, as quickly as possible.
A pair of spectacles must sit perfectly: They should not pinch or slip down the nose when you move. With the 3D video measurement system, the Rodenstock ImpressionIST®, the shape of your face, your interpupillary distance, as well as all key influencing variables, are measured exactly in combination with the selected frame - for the best possible vision experience.
Seeing through the lens in combination with the natural movements of the eye can lead to undesired 'swim' effects. In addition, a distorting effect occurs at the edge of the lens due to the change of power, unlike with single vision lenses. These annoying and unpleasant 'swim' and distorting effects can cause side effects such as headaches. With bespoke progressive lenses from Rodenstock these effects are reduced to an unnoticeable minimum.

Rodenstock light protection PRO410.
UV-rays can be harmful for your eyes as well as your skin and can even penetrate through the clouds of an overcast sky. Next to the UV-radiation in the spectrum is blue light. It is important for biorhythms and other biological functions of the body. As well as the positive effects, certain elements of blue light can also be potentially harmful.
The formula of success is the right relation. With Rodenstock light protection PRO410 your eyes only get the light they really need – day by day.
The right frame for your progressive lenses.
As a manufacturer of lenses and frames, we offer you perfect quality from a single source. Spectacle frames from Rodenstock combine innovative technologies and materials with a classic and traditional, as well as timeless and stylish, design. They are also perfectly tailored to their spectacle wearers. All frames from Rodenstock can be fitted with progressive lenses. Frames with large lenses are particularly suitable.Show all spectacle frames
Innovative eye measurement
Firstly, your eyes are measured with the ultramodern Rodenstock DNEye® Scanner. The measurement is fully automatic and very precise at over 7,000 measuring points.
Unlike traditional measuring devices, the DNEye® Scanner not only records the standard values for myopia (short-sightedness) and hyperopia (long-sightedness) and astigmatism, but far more e.g. the reaction of your pupil during the day and at night as well as the corresponding changes in vision. This way individual aberrations are also detected, which are responsible for reduced contrast sensitivity and poor vision at twilight, for example.
3D lens measurement
How the spectacles sit on your face plays a decisive role in the manufacture of customised lenses. The key measurement data is collected with the Rodenstock ImpressionIST®, a 3D video centration system.
You simply look into the mirror attached at the ImpressionIST®. You are captured from two perspectives by two cameras. Using these images, parameters of your face combined with the selected frame are measured exactly, as is the distance between the pupils and their diameter.
Test for presbyopia
What visual acuity do you have in the immediate working distance
Do the self-test for an initial assessment!
- Download our template and print it out.
- Hold the page 40 cm from your eyes. This corresponds roughly to a typical reading distance.
- Read through line after line. Remember the value before the last line that you can still clearly and easily detect.
The value that you remembered describes your visual acuity for near vision.
Visual acuity 0.8 to 1.0:
Congratulations! These values represent normal to very good vision. Repeat the test regularly to check your visual acuity.
Visual acuity 0.4 to 0.6:
These values are considered "reduced" and you probably need spectacles. A professional test with an optician or ophthalmologist is recommended!
Visual acuity 0.1 to 0.32:
Values in this range are considered as "visually impaired". You should therefore visit an optician or ophthalmologist straight away!
You will shortly receive an email confirming the data that has been sent to the optician. The optician will contact you directly to set-up your appointment.BACK TO HOME
