Plaquenil retinal exams are designed to help us assist you in maintaining good vision and your overall health in Newmarket, ON
Plaquenil (Hydroxychloroquine) is a drug used to treat patients suffering from eye inflammation. Designed to help with long-term solutions to eye inflammation, patients may also see some changes to their vision if they are prescribed a high dosage of this medication or have been taking Plaquenil for a long time. At Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry, we can assist you by scheduling Plaquenil retinal exams to determine if you may be suffering from symptoms due to long-term use of this drug.
Patients who use high dosages or have been using Plaquenil for a long time should schedule Plaquenil retinal exams routinely. These exams are designed to check your central and near central vision where patients who have described vision loss typically see vision changes over time. One way to check your vision during Plaquenil retinal exams is to use an Amsler Chart and test one eye at a time. If you experience blurred vision, distorted or curvy lines, or holes in the grid, you should contact your eye doctor immediately.
Many patients who use Plaquenil for inflammation never have symptoms of vision loss and should not be overly concerned. However, if you have noticed vision changes while taking this drug, it is important to schedule an appointment with our office right away. Plaquenil retinal exams are designed to help us assist you in maintaining good vision and your overall health.
