Yes, you should have a baseline exam once starting plaquenil and then a 6-12 month check-up. I do it every 12 months. I have no idea why the nurse would have given you an attitude about that? Makes no sense to me. I got a referral to an opthamologist from my primary, not my rheumy. Definitely follow up with an opthamologist, though.
