I would try 366.20, based on what I found trauma causes the rupture and then a cataract rapidly forms.

THanks for your reply, Laura. I should have indicated that the rupture occurred during cataract surgery and was listed as a complication. Evidently this may happen during cataract surgery, but I'm not sure which code to use. THe surgeon did not indicate vitreous hemorrhage.
