If abnormalities are present only unilaterally, investigate other causes besides hydroxychloroquine toxicity see “Differential Diagnosis of Bull’s-Eye Maculopathy”. Mechanism of Toxicity. The mechanism of hydroxychloroquine retinal toxicity has yet to be fully elucidated. The presence of bull’s-eye maculopathy indicates the disease has been progressing for years, resulting in foveal thinning and likely vision loss. 8 SD-OCT is a highly sensitive and reproducible imaging modality used in the detection of Plaquenil retinal toxicity. The preferential loss of photoreceptor IS/OS junction makes SD-OCT an ideal tool.
