    If you're taking this medicine for a long period of time, your doctor will probably recommend annual eye exams. Pregnancy and Plaquenil. It's not known whether Plaquenil will harm an unborn baby. I have been on hydroxychloroquine Plaquenil for 13 years and I go to my Eye Dr. for my annual visual field exam. Well I get bad news, I now have what he claims to be poison in one of the eyes.
