    Eye exam when taking plaquenil


    Hi Jennie, I just get an annual check and advise the optician that i'm on plaquenil and other meds and ask them check that there is no deterioration to my retinas when doing my eye test. I have had a dye put in on two occassions and to date other than light sensitivity due to other conditions i have had no deterioration or increase in my prescription in 14 years.

    Plaquenil is the brand name for the prescription drug hydroxychloroquine. It's used to treat and prevent malaria infection, and to reduce symptoms and progression of autoimmune diseases such as lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and others. Malaria is spread by mosquitoes. It is recommended that you have an eye exam within the first year of use, then repeat every one to five years based on current guidelines. Tell Your Doctor Although there are few drug interactions with hydroxychloroquine, to be safe be sure to tell your doctor about all of the medications you are taking, including over-the-counter drugs and natural remedies. Since the side effect of vision loss is possible but rare, it is important for you to tell your doctor about any vision changes that you experience. Doctors generally recommend regular eye exams while on Plaquenil, so that early changes can be caught. Once abnormalities are discovered, toxicity has already occurred.

    I wear varifocals and have done for years but my night vision is appalling, very blurred with or without my glasses. I have heard of one other person whose eyes were effected by the Plaquenil, and they had to come off it and the eyes did improve. To my knowledge the chances of anything occuring are remote and I have not encountered anyone who has had a problem due to plaquenil. I have got an opthalmologist appointment at the hospital on the 14th of this month because in the last 6 months I have noticed problems with my eyes, whether it is the plaquenil or not is yet to be discovered.

  6. 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.

    If you take Plaquenil for your inflammatory disease, your ophthalmologist will check for damage to the retina in the back of the eye while you take the drug. 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. I was told from the start by my rheumatologist I would have to have eye exams including visual field exams every six months due to the plaquenil therapy. My first two exams did include these tests. But my next six month appointment is coming up, and they told me I didn't need the visual field test this time so the appointment would be shorter.
