    Irlen Syndrome
    Has anyone heard of this and know what ICD-9 code I would use to code it? I found some info on this, but I dont know how to code. Any help would be great.
    thanks in advance

    Perhaps, something in 368—Visual Disturbances ?

    Here's a UK website (http://www.crossboweducation.com/irlen_syndrome.htm) that seems to have some information on Irlen syndrome, aka visual stress or Meares-Irlen. They have a US website: http://www.crossboweducation.us/. Perhaps they can connect you with an ophthalmology practice that deals with 'visual stress' who might share with you how they are coding this.
