    Ohio Subscriber Answer Plaquenil is the trade name for hydroxychloroquine, a medication used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. It can have adverse effects on the lens and/or retina and, therefore, the primary care physician or rheumatologist treating the condition refers the patient to an ophthalmologist for monitoring ocular changes. Today it is recommended that every single person on Plaquenil get a visual field 10-2 test, plus one of the three other highly sensitive screening tests the FAF fundus autofluorescence imaging, the SD-OCT spectral domain optical coherence, or the multifocal electroretinogram mfERG,” Thomas says. Plaquenil, widely used to treat lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory and dermatologic conditions, is very effective, and β€œthe risk of toxicity in the first five years for someone without special risk factors is very low,” Dr. Marmor said. However, risk increases with duration of use.

    Wrong Hydroxychloroquine Dose Is Common, Putting Eyes at Risk Up to half of patients treated with the arthritis drug hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil are prescribed more than the recommended maximum amount, according to new research. Plaquenil is the brand name for the prescription drug hydroxychloroquine. It's used to treat and prevent malaria infection, and to reduce symptoms and progression of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. I was told from the start by my rheumatologist I would have to have eye exams including visual field exams every six months due to the plaquenil therapy. My first two exams did include these tests. But my next six month appointment is coming up, and they told me I didn't need the visual field test this time so the appointment would be shorter.
