Patients in earlier stages of hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity usually do not experience symptoms, though the rare patient may note a paracentral scotoma that causes trouble with reading as well as diminished color vision. However, most patients usually notice symptoms only after scotomas have become severe. Hydroxychloroquine has significantly less retinal toxicity and has largely replaced chloroquine as a treatment of inflammatory disease. Unfortunately, the retinal damage from these medications is largely irreversible, so it is critical to detect early retinal toxicity in the hopes of limiting the extent of visual loss. Sign/Symptoms In doing those tests once a year we should be able to prevent progression of retinal damage.”. Those are early signs that you might be developing Plaquenil retinopathy,” says Katz.

    Vision changes/loss of vision There is a chance that retinal damage will occur while taking hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil or chloroquine Aralen. This is called known as hydroxychloroquine retinopathy. This sort of damage occurs only in 1 out of 5,000 people who take the drug for five years or more. If you are taking Plaquenil to treat an inflammatory condition or malaria, you should be aware of the side effects that may occur to your eyes and vision. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is in a class of drugs called disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs, which are used to decrease inflammation, pain and joint damage. Plaquenil-induced toxic maculopathy was first described in 1967. Because the retinal damage from plaquenil is usually irreversible if present for a more prolonged period of time, it is important to detect the disease in its early stages.
