Rodenstock’s lines of business
We are the only manufacturer to offer the System of
Better Vision. It is a combination of high-precision lenses,
perfectly matched frames and competent service.
Anyone who guarantees the best vision for any
requirement has to offer more than just high-quality lenses.
Therefore, our lenses are based on no less than three core competences:
- Optics: Lenses that let our customers exploit 100% of
their vision potential.
- Photochromism: 40 years of experience in the
development of phototropic lenses and a unique portfolio of
- Finishes: High-end finishes for perfectly protected lenses.
To us, the best looks are just as important as the best
vision. Therefore, the design fulfils more than just aesthetic
requirements. It also makes the glasses functionally perfect.
Our high standards for every frame are therefore derived not
only from one, but from three core competences:
- Design: Our correction and sunglasses provide
classical and timeless shapes that support the personality of
the wearer and let him look perfect in each life situation.
- Material: We use premium materials that promise
durability, adaptability and timeless elegance. The highest
standards and numerous tests guarantee the unique Rodenstock
- Comfort: Our long experience as a glasses
manufacturer coupled with the numerous adaptation
possibilities of our frames guarantee glasses that fit
perfectly for each individual need.
The future of individual glasses consulting has begun
with Rodenstock. Both opticians as well as end consumers profit
from our ultramodern measurement technologies.
- DNEye® Scanner: The optimum tool for high-precision
eye measurement and 100% exploitation of personal vision potential.
- ImpressionIST®: With the innovative measurement
terminal, we guarantee a frame design that matches your type
and lenses that are perfectly matched to your eyes and frame.
Specific services for opticians and end consumers have
arisen from the holistic claim of offering the System of Better
Vision, which make Rodenstock unique:
- Rodenstock Manufaktur: It has stood for expertise in
manufacturing special lenses since 1877, whether for specific
professional purposes or for recreation.
- Edging and glazing service: Complete glasses directly
from manufacturing. Even special glazing can be ground easily
thanks to innovative milling technology.
- Guarantees and services: Comprehensive quality and
satisfaction guarantees as well as optional insurance give the
customer an all-round, carefree package.
- Rodenstock Academy: The top address for high-quality
training and consulting products. Rodenstock is the market
leader for training courses for opticians.
The entire precision optics line of business was spun
off from the company in 1995 and incorporated into the newly
founded Rodenstock Technologie Holding as Präzisionsoptik GmbH.
In the year 2000, the Götting-based company LINOS AG, a global
manufacturer of complex optical systems, completely took over
Rodenstock Präzisionsoptik in Munich as well as Rodenstock
Precision Optics, USA. Rodenstock Fotooptik is now a brand of
Qioptiq. In turn, Qioptiq is part of Excelitas Technologies, a
global company in the field of electro-optics systems and components.
