We are the vision experts
The Rodenstock Group is a global innovation leader in the field of eye health and a major manufacturer of spectacle lenses and frames.
Rodenstock's success story is characterised by groundbreaking developments and market-leading lens technologies. The focus of our activities is on innovations that enable the sharpest vision for every angle and every gaze. In order to achieve this, Rodenstock determines the biometrics of the whole eye for the calculation of the lens. All relevant biometric data flows directly into the lens production process - this is unique in the industry.
We provide people with superior visual precision and comfort.
We strive every day to provide an unparalleled experience of biometrically enhanced vision to everyone across the world.
B.I.G. VISION® is our unique philosophy: We recognize that every person and every eye are unique and different.
That’s why we were the first to measure the individual eye and use thousands of data points to produce individual spectacle lenses. This made us what we are today. We are the vision experts. It’s what motivates us to provide people all around the globe with the best progressive lenses.
We don’t settle for standard – we always go one step further.

Our trademark, the Rodenstock R, is a symbol of innovation and precision. If you have chosen Rodenstock lenses, you will find the Rodenstock R on the right lens*. On your Rodenstock frame, it is located on the outside of the temple.
*Available at all Rodenstock opticians and only on branded products. On selected products, the easily recognisable Rodenstock R is omitted for technical reasons. These glasses have a micro-engraving in the lens which is difficult to see with the bare eye. If you have any doubts about the authenticity of your lenses, you are welcome to have them checked by a trusted Rodenstock partner optician at any time.
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
