    Medical Coding Books
    Doctor did a scleral suture fixation of a Morcher aniridic lens in a patient who is status post penetrating trauma of the eye. Patient is aphakic with loss of iris, areflexic pupil and corneal scar. Doctor created a corneal scleral tunnel and inserted the lens.

    Does 66985 cover this? Thanks.
