    Apr 20, 2011 A 45-year-old black female presented with no ocular or visual complaints. Her ocular history was unremarkable. However, her medical history was significant for a recent diagnosis of lupus. Her rheumatologist instructed her to undergo a baseline ocular examination prior to initiating Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine, Sanofi-Aventis therapy. Visual fields may be determined by several methods including a tangent screen, Goldmann perimeter, and computerized automated perimeters. Visual field examinations may be indicated in the diagnosis and monitoring visual field loss due to blepharoptosis or to disease involving the cornea, lens, retina, optic nerve, and intracranial visual pathway. The main outcomes were toxicity as determined by characteristic visual field loss or retinal thinning and photoreceptor damage. They also examined risk factors and prevalence. The study findings revealed that when hydroxychloroquine was used at doses 5mg /kg, the risk of retinopathy was 1% in the first 5 yrs. 2% in 10 yrs. 20 % after 20 yrs.

    Plaquenil/ Diarrhea - Autoimmune diseases - Inspire My doctor recently added Plaquenil to my medication list. He told me that my blood is clotting and Plaquenil is a blood thinner.
