In brief: Eye protection

Primarily sun glasses are used to shield the eyes from excessive bright environmental conditions.
Protection is afforded by the uv filter w/i the lens material. Also shielding of debris that gets kicked up in2 the air outside. The protective benefits are retardation of cataract formation ;decrease in degenerative changes ;diseases of eye including pingueculum, pterygium, mac degeneration, cancer.

In brief: Protect eye from UV

It is to protect your eyes from too much uv exposures.
Also, to help you to see better. With the bright uv light shining on your eyes, especially here in vegas- you sometimes can not see well without wearing sun glasses.
