    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. Fundus Autofluorescence FAF Early hydroxychloroquine toxicity can also be detected on autofluorescence as an increased ring of signal within the parafoveal and extramacular regions, which is indicative of photoreceptor dysfunction and RPE dysfunction. Bull's-eye maculopathy due to hydroxychloroquine toxicity. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine can cause toxic retinopathy due to their binding of melanin in the retinal pigmented epithelium RPE as well as direct toxicity to retinal ganglion cells.

Hydroxychloroquine plaquenil and chloroquine have an affinity for pigmented ocular structures and binds to melanin in the RPE Many systemic medications may cause retinal toxicity. One such commonly used medication for dermatologic and rheumatologic inflammatory conditions is hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil, a chloroquine derivative. It is used to treat many diseases including malaria, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. Chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil HCQ have been used for many years, initially for the treatment of malaria but now more commonly for the treatment of inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus 1.
