Rodenstock Road TÜV Certification

Rodenstock has become the first lens manufacturer worldwide to offer TÜVcertified driving lenses. TÜV Rheinland, an independent global organisation, has tested and guaranteed products for safety and quality for almost 150 years.

TÜV Rheinland conducted user testing on the Rodenstock Impression Road 2, a progressive lens specifically designed for drivers, and concluded that the design more than met the requirements for certification, with a user acceptance of 1.7.

In the practical test, the adaptation period as well as specific fields of vision were tested including vision at all distances without deliberate head movements; perception of the dashboard, GPS and mirror; and vision when parking.

TÜV Rheinland awarded the lens the “Easy to use and usertested” rating.

Reduction of glare from the reflections of traffic or the sun, in daylight and darkness, sun and rain was also tested as was the ability to see in different levels of contrast such as unlit objects at dusk. Colour perception for the perception of signal lights in different light conditions, and cleaning of the lenses were also aspects of the test. With user acceptance of 1.7, Impression Road 2 met not only the requirements for certification, but it even exceeded them. According to Rodenstock, this means Rodenstock Impression Road 2 demonstrably improves vision while driving.

Rodenstock Road was launched in Australia 1st March 2017.
