Plaquenil Retinal Exams, East Gwillimbury, ON
If you use Plaquenil to treat eye inflammation in East Gwillimbury, contact us to schedule Plaquenil retinal exams as part of your ongoing care.
If you are suffering from eye inflammation, the principal treatment includes the use of Plaquenil (Hydroxychloroquine). This drug was developed to provide a long-term solution to this often-chronic condition. However, as is the case with most beneficial medications, there is a need to monitor during and after using Plaquenil. If you have been using this medication for a long time or are prescribed a relatively high dosage, we recommend you call us here at Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry. We offer Plaquenil retinal exams to observe if you are suffering from any adverse symptoms from using this medication.
You may not notice any symptoms at all, but it is still a good idea to have this exam to maintain good vision and overall health. If you are noticing vision changes over time, our Plaquenil retinal exams can check your central and near central vision. You should contact us immediately if you experience blurred vision, distorted or curvy lines, or holes in the grid.
Plaquenil retinal exams use an Amsler Chart and test one eye at a time. Keep in mind that most patients who use this medication do not experience any symptoms of vision loss, so getting an exam is mostly a matter of making sure everything is fine. We offer convenient appointments for those in the East Gwillimbury, Ontario area, and you’ll find our caring staff and inviting atmosphere will put you right at ease. Our relaxing lounge area with Keurig coffee and guest Wi-Fi is part of our endeavour to treat your family like our family.
