Rodenstock distance spectacles – for everyone who wants to see clearly in day-to-day life.
Can you see objects up close quite well, but everything becomes blurred in the distance? Or the other way round? Do your eyes become tired quickly or red? Then the solution is obvious: Single vision lenses make sharp vision possible again at any distance.Test your vision
Do you need spectacles?
Three possible indicators of visual impairment:
Headaches and tension.
Do you often squint your eyes to be able to see sharper in the distance? Do you get headaches when reading or working at the computer for a long time? This indicates impaired sight.
Uncertainty in traffic
We rely in particular on good visibility when driving in the rain, in the dark or under backlight conditions. Therefore, even a slight vision problem can be annoying and cause disruptions and not least be dangerous.
Poor vision at twilight and in the dark.
Many people assume they are night-blind. In reality your visual impairment only appears different at night than during the day giving this impression.
Rodenstock presents: the first individual single vision lens.
The more accurately your lenses are adapted to you, the better you achieve a natural visual experience. There is an award-winning innovation at Rodenstock for this: individual single vision lenses that as well as your prescription, also take into account your face shape, posture and the fit of your frame. This makes a noticeable difference compared to traditional lenses:
Pin-sharp vision to the edge of the lens
by adapting the lens to the fit of your frame
Sharp, high-contrast vision
also in poor lighting conditions
Excellent spatial perception
for greater safety and reliability when driving
Optimal wearing comfort
thanks to very light plastic lenses
High breaking strength
also for rimless spectacles
Good look in every prescription
without magnifying effect or bulging eyes
How your customised Rodenstock distance spectacles are produced.
Every pair of distance spectacles from Rodenstock is unique. Ultimately every eye is different. This is why numerous individual measured values, both of your eyes and also the fit of the spectacles on your face, are incorporated in the bespoke manufacture of your Rodenstock distance spectacles. With the use of innovative technologies, spectacles are made that are perfectly adapted to your eyes and your face – so that you see better and sharper than ever before.
1. Innovative eye measurement
With the DNEye® Scanner we measure your eyes at over 7,000 measuring points. This way we can detect every individual detail.
2. 3D lens measurement
With a 3D video measurement the ImpressionIST® calculates all important values in order to optimally adapt the lenses to the frame and face.

The intelligent spectacles for indoors and outdoors with Rodenstock ColorMatic IQ® 2
Self-tinting spectacles automatically adapt to every light situation, providing comfortable and anti-glare vision at all times. They are crystal clear inside and change colour outdoors depending on the light intensity. Whether it is sunshine, artificial light, shade or twilight – changing between different lighting conditions makes your eyes tired more quickly. Our 100% UV protection up to 400 nm provides optimal protection of the eyes, as well as eye area and prevents premature ageing of the skin.How ColorMatic IQ® 2 works
Comfort for the eyes with additional support when reading.
Reading can be fascinating, relaxing or enjoyable. However, for your eyes it is mainly one thing: a challenge. A simple aid in the lower area of the lens makes it easier for the eyes to adapt to different viewing distances. This saves you, not only the fatigue from switching views to the book or display, but it is also easier to discover details – a benefit at work and in your leisure time.More about the reading aid

Test your vision
What visual acuity do you have in the distance? Try it!
- Download our template and print it out.
- Secure the sheet on the wall at eye level and move back 4 metres (5 steps).
- Try to see to where the circular opening is pointing. Remember the line that you can still clearly and easily detect.
At which line could you no longer precisely detect the circular opening? The corresponding value describes your visual acuity for distance.
Visual acuity 1.2 to 1.5:
Congratulations! You have eyes like a hawk! However, you should not forget to regularly visit the optician or ophthalmologist to check your excellent vision.
Visual acuity 1.0:
You probably do not need spectacles. However, the eyes may change over time and the visual acuity may deteriorate. Therefore, timely examinations are advised.
Visual acuity 0.8:
This is the limit for safe driving. You should still have your eyes checked with the doctor or optician! Bear in mind that at night or in glaring conditions you have reduced visual acuity than in daylight.
Visual acuity 0.4 to 0.6:
Your visual acuity appears to be alarmingly low. Have your eyes professionally tested as soon as possible! You need spectacles, especially when driving.
The field of vision of your Rodenstock spectacles with reading aid is specially adapted to your personal lifestyle and your viewing habits. The reading aid is located in the lower area of the lens and makes it easier for the eye to adapt to different distances. This guarantees fatigue-free and relaxed vision and also increases performance at work and in your spare time.
