What UV rays should sunglasses filter out?

UV-A and UV-B Rays From the Sun

Ultraviolet (UV) rays released by the sun come in several types. Some are typically filtered out by the Earth's atmosphere, but UV-A and UV-B type rays can harm delicate eyes, which is why sunglasses are so important. Look for high-quality sunglasses that filter 99 to 100 percent of both UV-A and UV-B rays if you want the best quality and protection in your sunglasses.
