    Pattern of Retinopathy: Although the locus of toxic damage is parafoveal in many eyes, Asian patients often show an extramacular pattern of damage. Dose: We recommend a maximum daily HCQ use of 5.0 mg/kg real weight, which correlates better with risk than ideal weight.

May 12, 2016 Plaquenil Eye Exams Plaquenil, also known as hydroxychloroquine, is a medication used in the treatment or prevention of malaria. It has also been used to treat other conditions, such as liver disease, that may have been caused by the same parasites that cause malaria. 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.

    Risk of Toxicity: The risk of toxicity is dependent on daily dose and duration of use. There are no similar demographic data for CQ, but dose comparisons in older literature suggest using 2.3 mg/kg real weight.

    The changes are most often permanent, but in some cases, vision has improved. Most rheumatologists recommend patients undergo a baseline eye examination prior to starting Plaquenil and be re-examined in the future depending on their risk for developing the condition. Risk factors include advanced age and having pre-existing retinal disease. Plaquenil is a pretty widely used drug so I figure she should have an opinion on it. I would feel more comfortable having the baseline exam done first BUT I am pretty eager to get started on it ASAP as my eye is starting to bug me due to the morphea that is slowly spreading. Baseline Examination All patients should have a baseline ophthalmologic examination within the first year of initiating HCQ or CQ therapy with thorough risk factor assessment and fundus examination of the macula to rule out underlying disease. Baseline visual field and SD OCT are recommended if abnormalities are present e.g. macular lesions, glaucoma, etc that could affect screening tests.
