  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.11 for Conjunctival deposits
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.111 for Conjunctival deposits, right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.112 for Conjunctival deposits, left eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.113 for Conjunctival deposits, bilateral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.119 for Conjunctival deposits, unspecified eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.12 for Conjunctival concretions
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.121 for Conjunctival concretions, right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.122 for Conjunctival concretions, left eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.123 for Conjunctival concretions, bilateral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.129 for Conjunctival concretions, unspecified eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.13 for Conjunctival pigmentations
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.131 for Conjunctival pigmentations, right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.132 for Conjunctival pigmentations, left eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.133 for Conjunctival pigmentations, bilateral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.139 for Conjunctival pigmentations, unspecified eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.14 for Conjunctival xerosis, unspecified
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.141 for Conjunctival xerosis, unspecified, right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.142 for Conjunctival xerosis, unspecified, left eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.143 for Conjunctival xerosis, unspecified, bilateral
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.149 for Conjunctival xerosis, unspecified, unspecified eye
  • NON-BILLABLE CODE - H11.15 for Pinguecula
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.151 for Pinguecula, right eye
  • BILLABLE CODE - Use H11.152 for Pinguecula, left 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 2 Excludes

Type 2 Excludes
A type 2 excludes note represents "Not included here". An excludes2 note indicates that the condition excluded is not part of the condition represented by the code, but a patient may have both conditions at the same time. When an Excludes2 note appears under a code, it is acceptable to use both the code and the excluded code together, when appropriate.

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.
