    Hydroxychloroquine is a common anti-inflammatory drug used in stabilizing rheumatologic conditions such as systemic lupus erythematosis. Given at higher doses over a long period of time, however, it can lead to retinal toxicity.

A comprehensive ophthalmology exam should be performed within 1 year of starting hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine.
