Visual Field Defect

    Can 368.44 be used for visual field defect being caused by overhanging eyelid? In a recent in-house audit our outside coding agency used this code and the auditing agency stated this code could not be used as 368.xx codes represent a loss of vision. Input would be appreciated.

    I use 368.40 for what you describe above.
