Is there a type of sunglasses that help protect people with myopia?

In brief: Not specifically

Generally though, good sunglasses block ultraviolet light (a and b) and to some extent the blue spectrum of visible light.
These higher energy/higher frequency wavelengths tend to do more damage to the macula (central retina).
