The presentation goes over how to spot and what testing to perform to make sure there is no retinal toxicity. Advanced hydroxychloroquine toxicity presents as a bullseye maculopathy.

Corneal toxicity presents as an intraepithelial deposition of the drug into the cornea, which rarely affects vision.
