996.69+379.03+v43.1

Any idea on how to code an inflammation of the trabecular meshwork for a status post IOL?

------------------
Trabeculitis, s/p IOL-
I’ll assign 996.69 + 379.03 (Inflammation// sclera/ anterior eye segment) + V43.1 (status)

Pls look up
Complications / ocular lens implant NEC
Infection or inflammation-996.69 +
Use additional code to identify the inflammation -379.03

If indicated- Use V45.61 if associated with concurrent cataract removal.

Trabecular meshwork= trabecular tissue of sclera


Thanks
