    Her rheumatologist instructed her to undergo a baseline ocular examination prior to initiating Plaquenil (hydroxychloroquine, Sanofi-Aventis) therapy. Toxic maculopathy associated with chloroquine use was first documented in the literature five decades ago.1 In the United States, Plaquenil––an analog to chloroquine––is used to treat a variety of conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and several distinct inflammatory disorders.

    The issues are reading, color and night vision. Patient 2 69 year old male presents with a history of long term plaquenil use. Diagnosed with RA at age 19 now has almost no use of his hands. Has had 10 surgeries mostly joint replacements, stopped all drugs last year after a life threatening infection now starting back on therapy. At San Antonio Eye Specialists, we monitor Plaquenil patients by testing visual acuity, color vision, central visual field testing, distortion test and a thorough retina exam. If signs of retinopathy are detected, the drug is stopped and vision typically returns to normal. In some cases, vision is permanently affected. Patients with retinal changes may be asymptomatic initially, or may have scotomatous vision with paracentral, pericentral ring types, temporal scotomas, and abnormal color vision.-Corneal changes including edema and opacities can be symptomless or may cause disturbances such as haloes, blurring of vision or photophobia. They may be transient.

    Initially, central visual acuity may be unaffected, but the patient may notice related paracentral scotomas that often interfere with reading. The associated classic retinal toxicity is described as a bull’s eye maculopathy (ring of depigmented retinal pigment epithelium that spares the foveal area).
