Dr. Marmor, who chaired the Academy’s screening guidelines committee, said the goal in Plaquenil screening is to catch changes at a very early stage when there’s just a minimal amount of loss of vision. Newer guidelines state that daily dose 5mg/kg of real weight/day can lead to toxicity.

Baseline screening and annual screening after five years is recommended.
