This eye toxicity limits long-term use of the drugs. Retinal toxicity is unpredictable and can occur even at relatively low doses of hydroxychloroquine. There are new screening modalities for early detection of asymptomatic hydroxychloroquine ocular toxicity.

    The risk of toxicity is low for individuals without complicating conditions during the first 5 years of treatment using less than 6.5 mg/kg/day of hydroxychloroquine or 3 mg/kg/day of chloroquine, and/or cumulative doses of less than 1000 gram and 460 gram (total dose), respectively.

The drugs inhibit RPE lysosome activity, reduce phagocytosis of shed photoreceptor outer segments causing an accumulation of outer receptor segments. Advanced hydroxychloroquine toxicity presents as a bullseye maculopathy. Since retinal toxicity is usually irreversible, early detection of retinal toxicity and cessation of the offending agent is the best treatment. Corneal toxicity presents as an intraepithelial deposition of the drug into the cornea, which rarely affects vision. Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine belong to the quinolone family.
