    The British Society for Rheumatology BSR has published updated guidelines on the prescribing and monitoring of DMARDs, which include recommendations for more intensive screening for retinal toxicity in patients on antimalarials advice represents a significant shift in practice and results in a substantial additional workload for ophthalmology services to undertake and interpret. Hydroxychloroquine HCQ is efficacious for various diseases1,2, but can produce “bulls-eye” retinopathy that decreases vision even after discontinuance3,4. Retinopathy can be present in 7.5% of patients after 5 or more years of HCQ treatment, increasing to 20% after 20 years2. When the clinician that detects early retinopathy does not discontinue CQ/HCQ therapy, the prognosis is a progressive loss of paracentral vision followed by loss of central vision and night blindness. Even when the clinician discontinues therapy, retinopathy can progress for many years.

    It is imperative that patients and physicians are aware of and watch for this drug’s ocular side effects. Retinal toxicity from hydroxychloroquine is rare, but even if the medication is discontinued, vision loss may be irreversible and may continue to progress.
