Thread: Ophthalmology/Optometry diagnosis

    Default Ophthalmology/Optometry diagnosis

    AAPC: Back to School
    I work for a large Ophthalmology/Optometry practice. We are discussing what the correct ICD-9 code for the condition "Pellucid Marginal Degeneration" would be. Is there anyone out there that could let us know what code they are using?
    Appreciate your help!
