Intelligent Lenses

Rodenstock’s Colormatic IQ lenses helps your eyes adjust to the changing brightness levels and offer more relaxed and comfortable vision. These innovative lenses contain around one trillion photochromic molecules. When UV light hits these molecules, they unfold – like many thousand umbrellas – and darkens the lenses. This process allows the lenses to be self-tinting land adapt automatically to any light situation. They also offer comfortable and glare-free vision at all times. These lenses offer guaranteed 100% UVA and UVB protection up to 400nm. This ensures optimum protection of the eyes as well as the surrounding areas while preventing premature aging of the skin.

Rodenstock Quality

Rodenstock has stood for the highest-quality glasses for more than 135 years. To meet the highest standards, Rodenstock has developed strictly defined quality assurance processes that ensure only perfect lenses and frames leave the company. Prerequisites for production of the highest quality products are strict criteria that are laid down in comprehensive guidelines. These criteria include specific technical, optical and haptic properties of the products for example uniform hinge movement or the perfect purity of lenses.

The customer, then, experiences this quality as glasses with exceptional wearing comfort, low weight and high durability. Rodenstock products are subjected to extensive quality tests even in the development stage. All the individual parts of the first samples are checked for the required quality. In addition, special machines and equipment test the long-term reliable operation of each individual element, for example the stability of the hinge movement even after opening and closing the sides thousands of times. After a new product is released, Rodenstock conducts constant monitoring and registers every complaint which immediately initiates improvement measures.

The Rodenstock ‘R’ Trademark

The Rodenstock “R” is a symbol of innovation and precision. It is a symbol of the unique “made in Germany” quality and reliability. The Rodenstock trademark has been found on all products since 1991. If you have chosen lenses from Rodenstock, you will find the Rodenstock “R” on the right lens. You will also find it on the outside of the sides on your Rodenstock frame.

A Single Source for Frames and Lenses

Rodenstock is the only manufacturer that offers you the both frames and lenses from the same source so you have the best of both worlds. We safeguard the heritage outlined by Josef Rodenstock still to this day and allow it to continue living in all products and every Rodenstock innovation. It is the sum of even the tiniest detail that makes glasses from Rodenstock so unique. It is something that no other manufacturer in the world can offer: a System of Better Vision. It is the perfect interplay between high-precision Rodenstock lenses, perfectly matched Rodenstock frames, and competent, individual measurement and advice. This interplay guarantees you not only receive the best vision, but the best look at the same time.

Visual impairments are not a disease, but can be remedied very easily if you understand the system of vision in its entirety.Josef Rodenstock
