I believe we should be ok by referencing the above types of light as "ultraviolet" and "visible" light. If you're asking about the approximate values/ranges of the wavelengths for each type of light, UV is around ~350nm while visible light is about 500nm (these values are within the ranges of UV/visible light and are rounded to be more easily remembered).
