    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 Plaquenil was originally used to treat malaria and is now used mostly to treat rheumatological and dermatological diseases. Its most frequent use now is for Rheumatoid Arthritis RA and Lupus and is often very effective in mitigating the joint and arthritic symptoms these diseases can cause. It has become fairly common practice for most rheumatologists to recommend that patients being treated with hydroxychloroquine be seen for formal visual field evaluation once or twice a year to monitor for retinal toxicity. The previous AAO guideline recommended screening every 12 months.
