Dislocated Intraocular Lens

  1. #1
    Default Dislocated Intraocular Lens
    Medical Coding Books
    Doctor sutured the IOL to the iris to correct IOL that dislocated after cataract surgery. He did paracentesis at 3 o'clock and 12 o'clock then placed the suture through the limbus and underneath the iris and superior haptic. I'm looking at 66825 but also 66682. Input would be appreciated.
