Rodenstock reading spectacles: for your reading pleasure

Confront vision problems at close range with a good pair of reading spectacles and obtain visual comfort and quality of life.

Customised lenses for your reading spectacles

Reading is simply part of life – but it becomes exhausting and challenging when letters and numbers become blurred in the near field of vision. Individuals who want to retain the pleasure in reading and to read novels, newspapers, menus or fine print with familiar ease find the optimal solution in a high-quality pair of reading spectacles.
A good pair of reading spectacles serves exactly one purpose: They restore sharp vision at short distances.
The more precise the lenses are adapted to you, the better the result. That's why at Rodenstock the lenses for reading spectacles are also made especially for your prescription, by means of a comprehensive analysis of your entire vision system. Your benefits:

    • Pin-sharp vision to the edge of the lens

      by adapting the lens to the fit of your frame

    • Optimal wearing comfort

      thanks to very light plastic lenses

    • High breaking strength

      also for rimless spectacles

    • Good look

      without magnifying effect or bulging eyes


When a pair of reading spectacles becomes useful and practical. And why.

Reading is difficult, always holding the book further away – are you also familiar with this situation? The reason for this is presbyopia, which is a completely natural process: Our eyes change as we get older and it becomes increasingly difficult to "switch" between near and distance vision. The minimum distance for a sharp image becomes greater and eventually exceeds the normal reading distance of 40 cm. Then the eyes become tired quickly or one gets headaches when reading. It doesn't have to be this way – with the right pair of spectacles, reading can feel completely natural again.

Optimal wearing comfort and aesthetic appearance

Aspheric prescription lenses are characterised by a flatter, less curved and thus slimmer shape. This is particularly useful for individuals with plus prescriptions. Benefits:
45% lighter than mineral glass
20% thinner than traditional plastic lens
30% reduced self-magnification of eye area

Biometrically exact lenses

Because every eye is different

With biometric lenses, we at Rodenstock have created a new generation of lenses: Thanks to innovative technologies, the center of sharp vision can be determined for each individual eye. As a result, you as a spectacle wearer benefit from the sharpest vision for every angle and every gaze, no matter where you look.

Discover biometric intelligent lenses
  • Innovative eye measurement

    To calculate your biometric lenses, a Rodenstock partner optician uses a DNEye® Scanner to measure the exact shape and size of your eyes at several thousand measurement points within a few minutes. On this basis, they can calculate lenses that fit your eyes as perfectly as possible: biometrically exact lenses - we call them B.I.G. EXACT™.

  • Custom made, perfect fit

    All relevant biometric data flows directly into lens production at Rodenstock - resulting in lenses that fit each individual person as perfectly as possible.

  • Your exact biometric lenses

    Within a few days you will receive your glasses with biometrically accurate lenses.
    This means you benefit from the sharpest vision from any angle, no matter where you look.

What should you bear in mind with reading spectacles?

Many people still believe in the myth that starting to wear spectacles early impairs the eyes. Fact: Individuals who deal with blurred vision for an unnecessarily long time gain nothing other than headaches and neck tension. That's why at the first sign of decreasing eyesight you should visit an optician or ophthalmologist and have a professional examination (refraction) carried out: the basis for your individual reading spectacles and a more relaxed life.

There are cheap reading spectacles in many supermarkets. But the "good offer" has a catch: Off-the-peg solutions are of course not suitable for your eyes. The prescription of both lenses are identical, although most people have different prescriptions for the left and right eye. Individual circumstances, such as a corneal curvature or the interpupillary distance, are not taken into consideration. Buyers also often choose lenses with too strong a prescription without a test and advice. The result: Inappropriate ready-to-wear reading spectacles can lead to complaints such as headaches and tired eyes if used permanently – exactly the opposite to what they should do.

Indulge in visual comfort without any compromises

One for all

Optimal vision at close range and in the distance with progressive lenses

Do you frequently switch between close-up view and distance vision? No desire to be changing spectacles all the time? Progressive lenses offer the desired comfort: In the progressive lens different viewing ranges are invisibly merged. You have sharp vision at all distances – comfortably without changing spectacles. And in terms of appearance progressive lenses do not differ from a "normal" pair of spectacles.

How progressive lenses work

Near comfort lenses

Relaxed working with the Rodenstock computer spectacles

At the workplace the view always has to adapt to different distances, to the desk to monitors and colleagues. This can be exhausting: Working on screens results in dry eyes, headaches or tension. The solution: computer spectacles with Rodenstock near comfort lenses. They are adapted to your typical visual movements and distances and thus relieve the eyes and pressure on your posture. You have more energy for more important things.
