    Default Phantom Eye Pain

    AAPC: Back to School
    Need a little help here....pt diagnosed with "phantom eye pain". Is there a generic phamtom pain dx that I could substitute?

    Aside from generlized pain, NOS 780.96, all I'm coming up with is:

    379.90 Disorders of the eye, unspecified
    379.99 Other ill-defined disorders of the eye
    379.91 Pain, in or around the eye

    If this is psychogenic pain, you might check out the codes around 307.80.

    Just some suggestions.

    Smile Phantom Eye Pain

    I queried one of our docs and 353.6 (phantom limb pain) seems to be the concensus. The doc tells me that the term limb is also usable for eyes, etc.

    Just food for thought.
