Founded in Würzburg, Germany in 1877 – the beginning of a success story began. Rodenstock has been an innovation leader in the area of ophthalmic optics for more than 140 years, and are the oldest optical company who manufacture both lenses and frames. Many years of research knowledge, superb craftsmanship, precise cutting and intelligent technology go into their products. With many optic firsts coming out of their labs including tinted lenses with prescription and UV protection (1899), the first transition lenses in Europe (1968) and plastic lenses (1974)! You can expect nothing less than a true masterpiece of precision – in terms of material, function and design from Rodenstock.
Progressive Lens Technology
As the name suggests, a progressive lens provides progressive power, and infinitely variable sharp vision at all distances. Because progressive lenses are able to correct defective vision for far and near at the same time. As there is no visible edge in the lens and the power changes are not recognisable from the outside, as such, progressive lenses also have aesthetic benefits.
Why do I need progressives? Our eyes change as we get older. When we become middle-aged the eye’s natural lens is no longer quite as elastic. It becomes increasingly difficult for the eyes to switch between near and distance vision – the eyes need some assistance. Progressive lenses are the ideal first-line solution here. With progressive lenses you don’t have the annoying and inconvenient task of changing spectacles all the time.
Rodenstock progressive lenses are always individually tailored to your eyes. In addition, they should also match the individual viewing habits of your life. Depending on whether you spend a lot of time sitting at the desk or are frequently outdoors, the fields of vision for near and distance, as well as in the intermediate range, should be different.
What’s the down side? Due to the progressive prescription change throughout the lens, some peripheral distortions are induced on the edges of the lenses. Sure, this may take some getting used to initially but the vast majority of the population adapt very easily and then reap the benefits. This is why the quality of the lens is so important, the better the quality, the fewer distortions.
Bear in mind every eye is as unique as you are. It is crucial to get everything correct: a good quality lens, a good quality prescription and then also get it setup correctly in your frame and even how that frame then sits on your face.
- 3-month satisfaction: Rodenstock guarantee you a smooth acclimatisation period with your progressive lenses. However, if you are not satisfied in the first 3 months, they will replace the spectacles with another product from their range of similar quality.
- 3-year quality guarantee: They give you a 36-month guarantee on the coating when you purchase spectacle with their premium coatings
- Traveller service: If your progressive lenses get damages or lost on a trip abroad, Rodenstock will send you an emergency set of distance and near spectacles in your prescription, directly to your residence – promptly and free of charge.
Clean lenses the whole day?! The new Xtra Clean finish coating makes it possible. This optional finish (applied to the front and back surface of the lens) on Rodenstock premium lenses is the deciding factor here. The extremely smooth surface means that dirt hardly sticks – and if the lenses do get dirty, it can be easily removed.
- Long-lasting, crystal clear view
- Fast and simple cleaning of lenses without leaving any streaks or residue
- Dirt water and dust repellent properties

“The best optometrist! My experience at East Vision was great, they were friendly, got to know me, and you can see their genuine care for their customers. You get a real feeling that nothing is being missed and the optometrist Photi's friendly approach, willingness to explain the process and answer my questions along the way was reassuring. If you are seeking a brilliant local optometrist in the Bulimba / Balmoral / Hawthorne area, I cannot recommend them enough!”Paul Holstein
“I recently had my eyes tested at East Vision Optometry and was extremely impressed by the detail taken to check all aspects of my eyes. They took images of the front and back of my eyes and saved these to use for future benchmarking to see what changes occur over time. They also ran through a detailed explanation of the overall condition of my eyes and my vision. This level of detail and explanation was something I haven’t experienced with optometrists I’ve seen in the past so I will definitely be using East Vision as my optometrist moving forward.”Sandy Carty
“Amazing, friendly and high quality service and reasonable prices!”Greta Sweeney
