Plaqenil Role in Prevention of Age Related Macular Degeneration
Observational Study Between People That Use Plaquenil and Those Who do Not in Prevention of AMD.

The investigators think that there is a connection between the use of plaquenil and the prevention of Age related macular degeneration (AMD). The investigators believe that the use of plaquenil makes bruch's membrane thicker, thereby preventing Chroidal Neovascularization (CNV) growth.

the study is done by comparing to groups RA patients who take plaquenil Vs. group of patients who do not take plaquenil. after measuring the retina thickness we compare the avg. thickness of both groups.
