Currently, one of the primary functional screening tests recommended for the evaluation of Plaquenil retinal toxicity is 10-2 white stimulus automated visual fields; however, research shows Asian patients benefited from 24-2 or 30-2 visual fields, given that toxicity often manifests changes beyond the macula in these patients. 9 Because spectral-domain optical coherence tomography SD-OCT is readily accessible and able to detect early structural damage prior to clinical funduscopic findings.
