    Question Which diagnosis code should I use to report visual field tests for patients on Plaquenil? Arizona Subscriber Answer Plaquenil is the trade name for hydroxy-chloroquine, a medication used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and lupus. Abnormal test is the visual field test, you may be asked to repeat it to make sure of the results. You will be told if any other tests are necessary and when you should be screened again. In cases of possible retinopathy, you will be recommended to continue taking 8 9 Macular Society Eye screening for patients taking hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is often prescribed to our pt's for arthritis, which can affect the field of vision.
