  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.03 for Double pterygium of eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.04 for Peripheral pterygium of eye, stationary
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.05 for Peripheral pterygium of eye, progressive
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.06 for Recurrent pterygium of eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.1 for Conjunctival degenerations and deposits
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.10 for Unspecified conjunctival degenerations

  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.22 for Conjunctival granuloma
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.23 for Symblepharon
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.24 for Scarring of conjunctiva
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.3 for Conjunctival hemorrhage
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.30 for Conjunctival hemorrhage, unspecified eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.31 for Conjunctival hemorrhage, right eye

Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries

The Tabular List of Diseases and Injuries is a list of ICD-10 codes, organized "head to toe" into chapters and sections with coding notes and guidance for inclusions, exclusions, descriptions and more. The following references are applicable to this diagnosis code:

Type 1 Excludes

Type 1 Excludes
A type 1 excludes note is a pure excludes note. It means "NOT CODED HERE!" An Excludes1 note indicates that the code excluded should never be used at the same time as the code above the Excludes1 note. An Excludes1 is used when two conditions cannot occur together, such as a congenital form versus an acquired form of the same condition.

Patient Education

Eye Diseases

Some eye problems are minor and don't last long. But some can lead to a permanent loss of vision.

Common eye problems include:

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.
