A fair number of lab eye wear provides this protection. For example,
the Uvex Astrospec 3000 S Protective "absorbs 99.9% of harmful UV
radiation up to 385nm" and the Uvex Astrospec 3000 Patriot, tinted
version, "absorbs 99.9% ... up to 400nm." In terms of goggles, the
Encon 500/600 Series No. 2843 "absorbs nearly 100% of UV rays up to
400 nm." Check out the Lab Safety catalog 800-356-0783 or
