Other tests may be considered as well, but are generally insufficiently sensitive to detect early evidence of hydroxychloroquine toxicity. The AAO guidelines go on to recommend the use of the multifocal electroretinogram multifocal ERG or mfERG as a functional test that can provide objective corroboration for visual fields by documenting parafoveal or extramacular electroretinogram depression in early retinopathy. 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.

Chloroquine overdose is a life-threatening emergency and should be managed with cardio-respiratory and hemodynamic support, monitoring of potassium along with management of arrhythmias and convulsions, as necessary.
