What is a UV Filter-001? I looked it up, but I can't get any defnitions on it

It is on my office light, and it is just a round glass thing that coves a light(led thing).

Presumably it would filter out ultra violet light. I use one on my camera, it cuts out a lot of reflected light on water and since both film and digital camera censors are more sensitive to UV than you and I can cut out a lot of haze the camera might pick up or even that we seen.
