I wear broad spectrum sun block while driving to avoid skin damage but I didn't know this kind of skin damage had a special name until now... Below is a story about a professional truck driver who had long term exposure (28 years) to Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays transmited through the window glass of a delivery truck he was driving. The resulting facial skin damage on the left side of his face is called unilateral dermatoheliosis.
