My left eye is losing color differentiation after 7 years of use.
It can be much more worse, some people taking this medication over long periods of time or at high doses have developed irreversible damage to the retina of the eye.-
Stop taking hydroxychloroquine and call your doctor at ASAP if you have trouble focusing, if you see light streaks or flashes in your vision, or if you notice any swelling or color changes in your eyes.-
I hope this does not happen to you or anyone on this medication.-
