    Ultraviolet (UV) light is simply a set of light rays too short to be seen by the human eye. So scientist invent sunglasses to protect our eyes. The tints in the lenses of sunglasses can keep UV lights from reaching our eyes. And certain colors can block UVB light. Amber and brown tints are especially useful at absorbing UV light to prevent eye damage. Sunglasses labeled "UV-400" should offer good protection from the sun. So chose a proper pair of sunglasses for yourself.
