    Default What is ESGON?
    I've never seen that abbreviation before. Do you have more information on the superbill or chart notes?

    I thought it stood for some type of End Stage Glaucoma. I found something on it before but can't seem to find it again. I'm thinking 365.89 for the diagnosis.

    Do you have some notes that you can post so I can get a better understanding of what you are seeing that you went to the 365.89 dx? You many be on the right track, but without more info I can't say for sure.

    No i don't have notes. I came up with 365.89 because it states other specified glaucoma. I don't think 365.9 Unspec glaucoma would be appropriate because it is specified as End Stage Glaucoma. I have found article's on this diagnosis but can't seem to find the ICD-9 on it.
