Patient had cataract surgery earlier in the week and sponataneous subluxation of lens material occurred. The patient now returns for Pars Plana Lensectomy with vitrectomy to remove retained lens material and IOL implantation. Can 66852 & 66985 be coded together or is the lens material considered remaining bits of cataract?

lens material would be part of the cataract, What does the Physician say?
