Acetate A plastic material consisting mainly of
cotton, which is available in innumerable shades of colour. We
exclusively use high-quality acetate that is absolutely skin
friendly. It is used for the fronts and sides, because it is very
light and can be adjusted individually by heating it slightly.
We also offer security for progressive glasses wearers
when they are travelling. If your spectacles are damaged or lost
when travelling abroad, we will send you a spectacles emergency set
to your place of residence with far vision or near vision glasses
with your prescription. It is an immediate, free and exclusive
service from RODENSTOCK. When you are back at home, simply return
the emergency set to your optician.
The hinges of glasses may indeed seem to have an
inconsiderable affect, but as the only moving part in the glasses it
fulfils two important tasks: First of all it provides the connection
between the front of the glasses and the sides. The higher the
quality of the manufacturing of the spring, the more reliable and
longer lasting the entire spectacles. Secondly, the glasses hinge is
decisively responsible for wearing comfort. Only if it is designed
to be flexible and durable at the same time, does it make it
possible to adjust the glasses to fit your head perfectly. The
premium hinges from Rodenstock guarantee all of these
characteristics. They are tested extensively for permanently good
hinge movement, high adjustability and maximum durability.
In order to ensure a high level of wearing comfort even in
the long-term, the glasses must be adjusted to your head shape as
accurately as possible. Rodenstock's development is based
on more than 135 years of experience in how glasses fit. For that
reason, glasses from Rodenstock are delivered anatomically
pre-adjusted, and afterwards there are still numerous adjustment
possibilities in the area of the nose pads, hinges and end pieces so
that the optician can match the glasses individually to your head
shape. That way eyewear from Rodenstock becomes the perfect glasses.
Mainly frames made of acetate and titanium are best suited
for people with nickel allergies. Both materials are hypoallergenic.
At the same time, all other materials used to make glasses comply
with the EU nickel directive. Rodenstock monitors compliance through
standardised quality checks.
Since we work together exclusively with specialised
optical businesses, there is unfortunately no possibility to handle
