In North Carolina they are now requiring a steriopsis exam (for depth perception) with the kindergarten exam. I can not find a CPT to use for just it or is it bundled in with the regular snelling eye exam?

I agree - that falls under the vision testing - (all they do is pick the wings off the bug) to check depth perception

Stereopsis testing on kidergarten exam

Thanks for the info. That is what I thought. So it appears we most likely will not be reimbursed as we usually are not for routine eye exam??????:p

so glad to see this

:) I am from NC too and so glad to see this post. Just this week, this came up in our offices and 99173 is best I could come up with as well. When did they start testing for this? I have a soon to be kindergartener who was not tested in May.
thanks
