In brief: Lenses blocking uv

The only component of light which can possibly damage the eye is the ultraviolet portion (uv).
To lower this probability you can wear lenses that block uv light. Most sunglasses do this nicely and any eye wear made of glass does this automatically. Most that do this are labeled and most optical shops can help you with this.
