    Ok so i did some research and it looks like 365.03 steroid respnders is when a patients IOP is high due to steroids where as, 365.31 glaucomatous stage is when a patient develops glacoma due to steroids, is this correct ?? So if a doctors marks off steroid induced glacoma you would use 365.31 ?
