I used plaquenil successfully for 20 years. I had developed nodules on my hands when my doctor put me on it. It was great!.......Then a year and a half ago I started noticing something funny in my vision. I went to the eye doc (which I did every 6 months) he immediately stopped the plaquenil and sent me to a specialist. I now have maculopothy in both my eyes. It is very hard to see, especially at night. I am now on methotrexate.
