I don't know if this helps, but V43.1 cannot be used as first listed diagnosis. Also, ophthalmologists don't get reimbursed for refraction, at least if Medicare is paying. Normally, during the YAG global, as with any surgery, unless a return to the OR/Procedure Room is required, the visit is a 99024 post-op nonbillable visit. If nothing else, it is a case of bad timing to bill refraction during the YAG global. I hope this helps
