    A risk factor for Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine retinotoxicity is a daily dose that exceeds 5.0 mg of drug per kg of body weight. The tool on the right simply calculates this threshold based on a ppatient’s real body weight. It’s important to understand that the daily dose is only one risk factor for plaquenil retinotoxicity. 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. Hence, it is imperative that we become familiar with recognizing the spectrum of HVF and SD-OCT findings associated with Plaquenil retinal toxicity. Of note, SD-OCT, in combination with Humphrey visual field testing, is critical for the early detection of Plaquenil retinal toxicity.
