    This may lead to lasting eyesight problems. The risk may be higher if you have some types of eye or kidney problems. The risk may also be higher with some doses of hydroxychloroquine, if you use hydroxychloroquine for longer than 5 years, or if you take certain other drugs like tamoxifen. Call your doctor right away if you have any eyesight changes like blurred or foggy eyesight, trouble focusing or reading, or trouble seeing in dim light. Jan 05, 2020 Hydroxychloroquine is a well tolerated medication for various rheumatologic and dermatologic conditions. Its main side effects are gastrointestinal upset, skin rash, headache, and ocular toxicity. Within the eye, hydroxychloroquine negatively impacts the cornea, ciliary body, and retina. Hydroxychloroquine is a common anti-inflammatory drug used in stabilizing rheumatologic conditions such as systemic lupus erythematosis. Given at higher doses over a long period of time, however, it can lead to retinal toxicity.

    Today, it is used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, some symptoms of lupus, childhood arthritis (or juvenile idiopathic arthritis) and other autoimmune diseases. Hydroxychloroquine is in a class of medications that was first used to prevent and treat malaria.

    Hydroxychloroquine retinopathy. It is known that some people who take hydroxychloroquine for more than five years and/or in high doses are at increased risk of damage to their retina, the light sensitive layer of cells at the back of the eye. This is known as retinal toxicity or retinopathy. Increased thickness of the RPE-Bruch’s membrane complex in Plaquenil patients has also been reported as an early sign. As the drug binds to melanin in the RPE, it causes degenerative changes, which leads to alteration in RPE metabolism that contributes to the changes in the RPE-Bruch’s complex. Multifocal Electroretinopathy measures electrical responses of various cell types in the retina. It is thought that although the bull’s eye seen on ophthalmic exam represents a disruption of the pigmented part of the retina, it is the photoreceptors that are the targets of hydroxychloroquine toxicity.
