Today it is recommended that every single person on Plaquenil get a visual field 10-2 test, plus one of the three other highly sensitive screening tests the FAF fundus autofluorescence imaging, the SD-OCT spectral domain optical coherence, or the multifocal electroretinogram mfERG,” Thomas says. Jan 01, 2020 In patients of Asian descent, it is recommended that visual field testing be performed in the central 24 degrees instead of the central 10 degrees. It is recommended that hydroxychloroquine be discontinued if ocular toxicity is suspected and the patient should be closely observed given that retinal changes and visual disturbances may progress even after cessation of therapy.

    Although the incidence of macular toxicity is infrequent with Plaquenil use (at a dosage of 200mg or 400mg q.d.), its visual impact can be devastating.

    Nov 01, 2015 The wider visual field tests, such as 24-2, are not sufficiently sensitive to screen the parafoveal region and may miss small scotomas. These tests are therefore not recommended as screening tools. Nevertheless, it is doubtful that the 10-2 visual field test is sufficiently effective as a screening tool. In many cases, the diagnosis of HCQ retinal toxicity was delayed when visual field tests were dismissed as “nonspecific.” A visual field test is a method of measuring an individual's entire scope of vision, that is their central and peripheral side vision. Visual field testing maps the visual fields of each eye individually and can detect blind spots scotomas as well as more subtle areas of dim vision.
