High-speed ultra–high-resolution optical coherence tomography OCT shows severe loss of the photoreceptor inner segment/outer segment junction layer, thinned outer nuclear layer, and perifoveal hyperscattering as well as increased penetration of the optical coherence tomography beams into the choroid. Studies have shown that patients who have manifested with retinopathy have traces of Plaquenil metabolites in their erythrocytes, plasma, and urine even after 5 years of discontinuing the medication 1, 2, 3.
