Toxicity from hydroxychloroquine may be seen in two distinct areas of the eye the cornea and the macula. The cornea may become affected relatively commonly by an innocuous cornea verticillata or vortex keratopathy and is characterized by whorl-like corneal epithelial deposits. Plaquenil, widely used to treat lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory and dermatologic conditions, is very effective, and “the risk of toxicity in the first five years for someone without special risk factors is very low,” Dr. Marmor said. However, risk increases with duration of use.
