    The 2000 Lab Safety Supply catalog, pp. 290-295 show UV-blocking

Please note that not all of the glasses shown on these pages filter
UV radiation.  Some glasses are intended only for impact or chemical

I am sure that there are others, but these two suppliers offer a
nice range of styles and colors as well as are OSHA approved.
