    Who can do a plaquenil eye exam


    In Sjögren’s, Plaquenil is used to treat many symptoms of Sjögren’s including fatigue, joint symptoms of arthritis and arthralgias (joint pain), dry mouth and dry eyes. Similar to its use in systemic lupus erythematosus, many clinicians feel that it is useful in reducing general Sjögren’s “disease activity.” One of the reasons that physicians feel comfortable in prescribing Plaquenil is its low risk to benefit ratio.

    Plaquenil Screening. Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine is a medication used to treat many rheumatologic diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis. Generally it is safe, but one of the side effects of Plaquenil is retinal toxicity. If retinal toxicity is not detected, and Plaquenil is continued, it can cause irreversible vision loss. Hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil is considered a disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drug DMARD. It can decrease the pain and swelling of arthritis. It may prevent joint damage and reduce the risk of long-term disability. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria. I have been on hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil for 13 years and I go to my Eye Dr. for my annual visual field exam. Well I get bad news, I now have what he claims to be poison in one of the eyes.

    As with any medication, allergic reactions including skin rashes and non-allergic reactions can occur. This means that the side effects of Plaquenil are mild and infrequent compared with its potential benefits.

    Plaquenil hydroxychloroquine used for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis can cause toxicity to the retina leading to vision loss. In this episode of A State of Sight, Isaac Porter, MD explains how. 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. 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.
