The most worrisome toxicity is irreversible damage to retinal pigment epithelium which can lead to blindness. The most recent 2016 guidelines from the American Academy of Ophthalmology AAO recommend the dose of HCQ ≤5 mg/kg real body weight to minimize toxicity1. According to these Abstract. Background The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommendations on screening for chloroquine CQ and hydroxychloroquine HCQ retinopathy are revised in light of new information about the prevalence of toxicity, risk factors, fundus distribution, and effectiveness of screening tools. Plaquenil toxicity screening has new guidelines that were updated in 2016.
