Its use has been associated with severe retinal toxicity, requiring a discontinuation of therapy. The electroretinogram ERG is the most direct and objective test available for evaluating the function of the retina. Electrodes are placed on the skin around the eye and a soft gold foil electrode is positioned over the lower lid to be in contact with the cornea through the tear film. Multifocal ERG Diopsys is the world leader in modern visual electrophysiology. The blog is written to give eye care professionals more information on flicker electroretinography ffERG, pattern ERG PERG, multifocal ERG mfERG and visual evoked potential VEP.

    Risk of Toxicity: The risk of toxicity is dependent on daily dose and duration of use. There are no similar demographic data for CQ, but dose comparisons in older literature suggest using 2.3 mg/kg real weight.

I have been on Plaquenil for 4 years now, with the initial side effects a little stomach upset-take w/food having worn off in about 2 weeks, without that horrible pain or need for a dose increase. The only thing I need to do with Plaquenil is an eye exam every 6 months.check for changes in vision. Full Field ERG/EOG measures the entire retina as one unit. It is not sensitive to early toxic changes; 2 it only shows abnormalities in late chloroquine or hydrochloroquine toxicity. 1 These tests help judge how severe or widespread the damage is once toxicity has been established. 1
