    TIA - Visual TIA- Is this the diagnosis you are looking for?

    The most common abbreviation that fits for TIA is Transient Ischemic Attack with the code 435.9, I know of.
    BUT,
    In Opthalmic department the doctors use TIA for visual TIA, meaning a visual transient ischemic attack (TIA) which goes with the diagnosis code : Transient Visual Loss 368.12
    Does this answer your scenario? please check. If not place a request with your doctor please.
    thank you
