H05.121 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of orbital myositis, right orbit. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Orbital myositis
- Orbital myositis of right eye
- Orbital Myositis-. inflammation of the extraocular muscle of the eye. it is characterized by swelling which can lead to ischemia, fibrosis, or orbital pseudotumor.
- Orbital Pseudotumor-. a nonspecific tumor-like inflammatory lesion in the orbit of the eye. it is usually composed of mature lymphocytes; plasma cells; macrophages; leukocytes with varying degrees of fibrosis. orbital pseudotumors are often associated with inflammation of the extraocular muscles (orbital myositis) or inflammation of the lacrimal glands (dacryoadenitis).
- Orbital Myositis-. a rare form of myositis that affects only the orbital muscles.

Some eye problems are minor and don't last long. But some can lead to a permanent loss of vision.
Common eye problems include:
- Refractive errors
- Cataracts - clouded lenses
- Optic nerve disorders, including glaucoma
- Retinal disorders - problems with the nerve layer at the back of the eye
- Macular degeneration - a disease that destroys sharp, central vision
- Diabetic eye problems
- Conjunctivitis - an infection also known as pink eye
Your best defense is to have regular checkups, because eye diseases do not always have symptoms. Early detection and treatment could prevent vision loss. See an eye care professional right away if you have a sudden change in vision, if everything looks dim, or if you see flashes of light. Other symptoms that need quick attention are pain, double vision, fluid coming from the eye, and inflammation.
