    I need a DX code for the above. The doctor did not indicate polar or whether or not this was a senile or nonsenile cataract. The patient is 80 years old and has a HX of retinal detachment and posterior segment changes of peripheral retinopathy. I'm looking in the 366.00area. Thanks for your input.
