Question Filtering optical photons and counting them

Hello:
 I am trying to simulate a Cerenkov water tank detector and I need to count
the number of optical photons arriving at my PMT per event, but only those
photons with energies lower than 4.0 eV and higher than 2.2 eV. I implemented
a primitive counter with a filter using ExN07 as guide, but I can only filter between
particle types and not energy ranges; in other words, how can I count the
number of photons with energies inside a given energy range arriving at my
PMT?
Thanks in advance for your help, and my apologies if this question is silly, but I am
confused on how to create Sensitive Detectors in GEANT4.
