This level is reached in about 7 years with the most common daily dose of Plaquenil, 400 mg/day 200 bid. The American Academy of Ophthalmology released an updated set of screening recommendations for hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil and chloroquine to account for the many studies that have shown the effects of these medications on the retina 1.

FAF is an objective imaging test that uses the properties of the RPE to detect early toxicity. In early hydroxychloroquine toxicity, FAF often shows subtle parafoveal hyperautofluorescence, thought to be related to increased lipofuscin activity in the RPE. 4 In later stages of disease, hypoautofluorescence will be noted and is an indication of. Abstract. Background The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations on screening for chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy are revised in light of new information about the prevalence of toxicity, risk factors, fundus distribution, and effectiveness of screening tools.
