SAFILO EXCEEDS EXPECTATIONS WITH X-CEDE. Powered by NXT® lens technology, CARRERA X-cede Rx-ready sun lenses go after distortion-causing light rays, while adding incredibly vivid color, clarity, and detail for the wearer. The lenses are currently fitted into eight of the most popular vintage styles in the CARRERA collection. Available in brown, gray (with flash silver mirror), and green, the non-film polarization technology fuses polarization and color enhancement together, allowing for edge-to-edge polarization efficiency and optical clarity that doesn’t delaminate, peel, or fade.
