    It is crucial to detect retinal toxicity induced by HCQ early and take necessary actions before it results in permanent visual loss. In our study, we demonstrated HCQ-induced retinal toxicity at an earlier stage through the measurement of RGC-IPL thickness by using SD-OCT, which is an easy-to-use and non- invasive method. Plaquenil-induced toxicity usually will not occur before five years of taking the drug. “Eye damage due to Plaquenil is not common,” he says. “Rarely will anybody who has good vision and minimal symptoms develop loss of central vision or ability to read if annual screening is done and visual are symptoms reported as soon as they occur so the medication can be stopped if toxicity occurs. Plaquenil induced retinal toxicity is reversible if detected early and plaquenil dosage altered or the medication discontinued. Even suspicious early plaquenil toxicity warrants communication with the patient’s treating physician, and meaningful coordination of care would include a report even if the findings are normal.
