    The new guidelines recommend 10-2 automated perimetry, plus at least one of SD-OCT, FAF, or mfERG if they are available. These tests should be performed at baseline and at each subsequent evaluation. Other tests may be considered as well, but are generally insufficiently sensitive to detect early evidence of hydroxychloroquine toxicity. In early cases of toxicity, visual fields will typically reveal a paracentral scotoma. If a 24-2 or 30-2 field is performed, be way of overlooking the 2-degree field of sparing seen on 10-2 fields; in these tests, a small central defect may be seen instead. To quantify the variability of scotomas detected by 10–2 visual field VF testing with a red target in patients taking hydroxychloroquine without and with retinopathy. Retrospective review of clinical charts and VFs. Twenty-four patients taking.

    In the United States, hydroxychloroquine is most often used for its anti-inflammatory effects in rheumatology and dermatology. Chloroquine is now uncommonly used in favor of its derivative hydroxychloroquine.

    The 10-2 white test was felt by the authors to be the most reproducible and easiest to interpret. Although visual field defects in HCQ toxicity can be highly variable in terms of the depth of defect, all our patients showed a similar pattern on 10-2 white, with the same areas affected. I work in an ophthalmology office. Plaquenil is often prescribed to our pt's for arthritis, which can affect the field of vision.

Screening requires the use of tests, such as 10–2 visual fields and SD-OCT and other modern techniques, such as autofluorescence imaging and multifocal electroretinography, to demonstrate early retinal damage.” 1 Melles & Marmor.

    Hair loss and Plaquenil? DailyStrength Plaquenil is supposed to help with hair loss, not contribute to it. I would also suggest giving it some more time especially since the side effects of plaquenil are supposed to lessen after a few months of use. Did your hair loss start within a few weeks or beginning of your use of plaquenil?
