Thread: large cup to disc ratio

  1. #1

    Default large cup to disc ratio

    I need to code a diagnosis of large cup to disc ratio. Would a glaucoma suspect 365.00 be appropriate to use for this type of diagnosis?

    I'll assign 377.14 WO any definitive dx of glaucoma.

    Pls look up
    cupping of the optic disc-377.14{377.14- Glaucomatous atrophy (cupping) of optic disc}

    Need to confirm
    for ANY prior Dr's DX of glaucoma. Is the indication a “screening”, if so the PDX changes.

    cup-to-disc ratio is a measurement used in ophthalmology and optometry to assess the progression of glaucom.The optic disc can be flat or it can have a certain amount of normal cupping. But glaucoma, which is due to an increase in intra-ocular pressure, produces additional pathological cupping of the optic disc.

    Thank you! I certainly can follow that line of logic.
