Given that the retinal damage from these medications is largely irreversible, screening by a retinal specialist is critical to detect early retinal toxicity to try and limit the extent of visual loss. The toxicity resulting from the intake of Plaquenil is due to its affinity for melanin -containing structures in the body. With prolonged usage, metabolites in the drug accumulate in the retina. The drug remains in these parts even if the patients stopped taking the drugs.
