Can you classify ordinary light as ionizing radiation?

Can you classify ordinary light as ionizing radiation?

Okay. So, I’m thinking that ordinary light has about 2 eV of energy per photon.
But, alpha, beta and gamma ray have huge eV from 0.1 to 10 MeV.

However, could there be a case where the 2 eV could knock out an electron and cause ionization?
