Lens Hood

The main purpose of a hood is to block or reduce the amount of lens flare and glare in your photos by acting like a visor for your lens. Flare and glare are types of scattered light that hit your lens from an angle (outside the frame) and makes it hard to see, like when you step out in bright light.
