With EyeLT®

Disadvantages of conventional progressive lenses

Everyone has certain visual habits, for example tall people always look slightly downwards to be able to look their counterpart in the eyes. Conventional progressive lenses with standardised visual zones for near, intermediate and far vision cannot take such habits and many other parameters into consideration, such as how the glasses fit on your face. As a result, they offer less visual comfort and affect your natural visual behaviour.

  • limited visual zones
  • longer acclimatisation time
  • bothersome rocking effects during dynamic activities

Experience the benefits of EyeLT®!

For progressive glasses, it is important to have the most accurate adaptation possible to the glasses wearer and his individual visual requirements. Our revolutionary Eye Lens Technology, or EyeLT® for short, sets standards in connection with the best compatibility, excellent visual comfort and clarity. You can exploit 100% of your vision potential.

  • high-contrast vision, especially at dusk
  • immediate, optimum compatibility
  • extensive analysis of the entire vision system
  • brand quality from Rodenstock, recognisable by the visible R signature

This is how progressive glasses work

Progressive provide a seemless progression in lens strength for the near, intermediate and far range. The bothersome changing between reading and standard glasses is no longer necessary. And, progressive glasses also have benefits when it comes to looks: Because the different visual zones in the lens transition into each other invisibly, the progressive glasses grant an unimpeded view of your eyes, and cannot be discerned from normal single vision glasses.

Since even sport glasses can be equipped with progressive lenses, you don't have to do without your smooth visual comfort when you are jogging or playing golf.

When do progressive lenses make sense, and for whom?

• Suitable for people with presbyopia
• Relevant as of ca. 40 or 45 years
• No bothersome glasses changes
• Uncompromised visual comfort

More about the test for presbyopia

During the course of the natural ageing process, the elasticity in the lens starts to deteriorate, and it can no longer adjust optimally to different distances. You will notice this as your "arms are becoming too short" when reading. This means your arm is not long enough to hold a book at a comfortable reading distance. For anyone who doesn't want to constantly put the obligatory reading glasses on and off, or alternatively doesn't want to change between different glasses, the best thing is to reach for progressive glasses. Because when it comes to visual comfort, you shouldn't make any compromises. Test your eyes for farsightedness now with our self-test.

Acclimatisation time for progressive glasses

• Your eyes must adjust to the "progressive vision"
• Time: several hours to a few days
• The sooner you start, the faster the acclimatisation
• Particularly short for progressive lenses adapted using EyeLT®

More about EyeLT®

The conversion to progressive lenses is initially something that takes getting used to, because the eyes are always offered several images at the same time. However, once you have trained your vision, you can quite normally focus on the desired distance. By the way, with progressive lenses that have been adapted with EyeLT®, the acclimatisation time is comparatively short. The result is that you use your personal vision potential by 100 % as quickly as possible - for crystal clear vision at all distances.
