Tilden Eyeglasses Review for Men and Women
Reviewed by Bhumii Rukheja
These eyeglasses feature lenses in a squarish shape that will give you a refined look with their sophisticated detailing. The collection takes inspiration from the ‘Bug-eye’ design of eyewear that sits snugly on your face while adding extra definition to your best features. The soft curves of the frames combined with the angular details will fit perfectly into your wardrobe. Tilden is a fully rimmed frame that will keep all the focus where it belongs – on your face.
A meticulously crafted saddle nose bridge adorns the frame. The medium-sized bridge has perfect curves that sit nicely on your nose while balancing the lenses. Built-in acetate nose pads are curved and offer optimal grip. Equally proportioned lenses ensure viewing comfort. While square eyeglasses work well on round, heart-shaped, and oval faces, the series comes in a wide fit, making it suitable for almost all facial contours. A classic shape like Tilden speaks volumes when it fits well.

Tilden Design Details
With its interesting silhouette and angular details, Tilden is an unfussy frame that aims to intensify your style remarkably. The arched top rim mimics your eyebrows, highlighting them. A squared-off bottom edge enhances the contours of your face. Warby Parker’s signature ‘Double Rivets’ on each end piece adds an unexpected style to your demeanor. Gleaming temple arms are long enough to rest comfortably behind your ears while attracting attention to your side profile. Don Tilden glasses with your casual or official outfits and flaunt your persona.
The frames are made using custom cellulose acetate. Cellulose acetate is a plant-based and biodegradable material. Acetate frames are flexible, durable, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly. It also helps preserve the style, colors, and patterns of Tilden over time. Akulon-coated screws and barrel hinges enhance the durability of the frames. Non-prescription lenses use CR-39, which is half the weight of glass, making them easy to carry. These lenses ensure maximum color intensity and clarity. Prescription lenses use Polycarbonate, an impact-resistant material that keeps the lenses from shattering and breaking when subjected to external factors. The lenses are treated with scratch-resistant coatings that enhance vision and decrease eye strain. These high-quality lenses block 100% of UV rays, thus protecting the eyes.
