In brief: Uv light

Uv light can be uncomfortable and harmful for the eyes.
Almost all sunglasses are made for filtration out of this type of light. Glass is especially good for this., your optician can made recommendations if this is a critical need.

In brief: UV

Sunglasses should provide as close to 100% uv shielding as possible.
Most sold in this country meet this standard. Beware of very inexpensive, no-name lenses at venues such as swap meets, they may not have been tested adequately. Many people feel bronze, polarized lenses provide the most comfort and glare reduction.
