Rodenstock is the quiet, yet superior quality lens company that employs German technology and engineers. They have the ability to make ultra-thin 1.9 index glass lenses for high prescriptions, which are digitally ground for extremely clear vision and thinness. Rodenstock lenses are used widely in Europe by those who demand only the best when it comes to their vision.

One particular lens worth mentioning is the Essilor Vantage lens, which combines Transitions colour changing technology with polarization that is activated by sunlight.

Guaranteed Authentic
Each pair of our Zeiss, Rodenstock, Essilor and Nikon lenses come with their very own Certificate of Authenticity because we buy them directly from the manufacturer.

Simply the Best
The optical industry can be very confusing to the consumer because there are so many designs of lenses, each claiming to be the best. We keep it simple by sticking to the top lenses from the top manufacturers in the world. Carl Zeiss, Rodenstock, Essilor, and Nikon produce their lenses on the best equipment systems, employ top engineers and scientific minds.

Buying directly from each lens manufacturer guarantees that the lenses are coated by them to ensure compatibility. This is not always the case in the optical industry, as many outside labs act as the “middle man” and coat brand name lenses with their own coatings and machines.

Made in our Lab for Quality Control
Your lenses are cut, finished, and assembled in our on-site lab, outfitted with the best machines and equipment as well as highly capable lab technicians. We honour all manufacturer warranties.

Our range of available lenses, knowledge, expertise and experience, combined with a highly developed fitting and manufacturing process create the ability for us to control the outcome of your eyeglasses.


Zeiss, Rodenstock, Shamir, Essilor and Nikon carry a two year warranty against peeling coatings and other manufacturer defects in these lenses. This does not cover lens abuse. Read more about our warranties here.
