Oh I see Mary Gee, I don't think the doctor should stop the plaquenil. I CAN though, understand your doctor being concerned regarding the condition of your eyes, and I am sure he wants to make sure that the medicine is not hurting you. They (the eye doc) did a color test on me Monday at my appointment. I guess one of the things that is affected first by the plaquenil is our ability to see colors accurately. IF we cannot, that is symptomatic that something is going wrong. I hope your eye doctor does the color test. I passed so that was good. I am REALLY glad you are seeing your eye doctor. Please do make sure you keep up with those appts. Plaquenil can cause blindness, although if that happens I do understand that our sight will resume once the medication is stopped.
Let me know how you make out, and good luck
