... taken Plaquenil and had eye problems since taking the medication. I have 20/200 vision now in my right eye after being on the med for 11 years and they tell me now my retina looks like "dry rot in a piece of wood" and that there is nothing they can do to help it. I am considering a lawsuit since there were parameters for tests that should have been done for a plaquenil patient , symptoms or not. Catching the problem early is key from what Im reading. Also after 5 especially 7 year mark the odds of destructive eye damage goes way up. Why didnt my medical professional know that and at least given me an option of staying on Plaquenil or not (since the medication did do a good job remedying my disease but now my eye sight is shot!) Please share
