    Thanks for the reply, i was thinking of the same code. my only problem is that it says Discission of Secondary Membranous Cataract, by LAser

    The doctor wants to use YAG LASER to destroy epithelial down growth. No secondary membrous cataract / PCO.

    The 66821 is for the posterior cap opacification after cataract sx.

    What your doctor wants to do is probably unlisted code. And if this is after a surgical procedure, it is probably not payable.
