    In 2011 the American Academy of Ophthalmology published new clinical guidelines for appropriate annual screenings for those patients taking Plaquenil. These guidelines are much different from the previous 2002 recommendations, and many practicing doctors were trained with the 2002 guidelines in mind. And screening tests, but that screening begins after one year of therapy for all patients on chloroquine. Screening may be best incorporated into the hospital eye service via virtual clinics. The results of screening should be communicated back to the prescribing doctor, patient and GP as normal, possible or definite hydroxychloroquine retinopathy. Guidelines on screening for retinopathy associated with hydroxychloroquine toxicity were initially published by the Academy in 2002. These guidelines were updated in February of this year, given the emergence of more sensitive diagnostic techniques and the recognition that risk of toxicity from years of hydroxychloroquine use is greater than.

    It is imperative that patients and physicians are aware of and watch for this drug’s ocular side effects. Retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine is rare, but even if the medication is discontinued, vision loss may be irreversible and may continue to progress.
