    AAO Screening Guidelines for Plaquenil by S P Check out my recent review/summary of the American Academy of Ophthalmology’s statement on the Recommendations on Screening for Chloroquine and Hydroxychloroquine Retinopathy 2016 Revision from the Ophthalmology Journal 2016;186-1394. In early cases of Plaquenil toxicity, an early indicator of damage is the appearance of a paracentral scotoma seen on automated visual field testing in the absence of fundus changes. 18 Each of the testing strategies can be used to detect early toxicity changes, but the presentation of the visual field effects will vary. Due to the central area being depressed in the 24-2 and 30-2 testing strategies, it is difficult to discern the central 2-degree field of sparing seen in the 10-2 tests. Dr. Corte provides a quick reference guide based on the AAO's updated screening guidelines for chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil retinopathy. As optometrists, it is important that we are aware of the possible ocular complications that can occur from the use of high risk medications.

    Risk of Toxicity: The risk of toxicity is dependent on daily dose and duration of use. There are no similar demographic data for CQ, but dose comparisons in older literature suggest using 2.3 mg/kg real weight.

    Answer When billing Plaquenil examinations, or any other high risk medication exams, it is appropriate to bill the systemic disease or any ocular manifestations as the primary diagnosis since many payers may not reimburse for the high-risk medication diagnosis as a stand-alone diagnosis. Testing services performed should have the high-risk.
