H35.00 is a billable ICD-10 code used to specify a medical diagnosis of unspecified background retinopathy. The code is valid during the fiscal year 2023 from October 01, 2022 through September 30, 2023 for the submission of HIPAA-covered transactions.
Unspecified diagnosis codes like H35.00 are acceptable when clinical information is unknown or not available about a particular condition. Although a more specific code is preferable, unspecified codes should be used when such codes most accurately reflect what is known about a patient's condition. Specific diagnosis codes should not be used if not supported by the patient's medical record.
The following clinical terms are approximate synonyms or lay terms that might be used to identify the correct diagnosis code:
- Acute zonal occult outer retinopathy
- Adverse reaction to Cinchona alkaloid
- Autosomal recessive chorioretinopathy and microcephaly syndrome
- Background retinopathy due to impaired glucose regulation
- Bilateral retinopathy
- Bilateral retinopathy of eyes caused by hydroxychloroquine
- Chloroquine adverse reaction
- Chloroquine retinopathy
- Desferrioxamine adverse reaction
- Desferrioxamine retinopathy
- Estrogen antagonist adverse reaction
- Familial aplasia of the vermis
- Hereditary vitreoretinopathy
- Hydrochloroquine retinopathy
- Hydroxychloroquine adverse reaction
- Joubert syndrome
- Joubert syndrome with ocular defect
- Osteogenesis imperfecta, retinopathy, seizures, intellectual disability syndrome
- Paraneoplastic retinopathy
- Quinine adverse reaction
- Quinine retinopathy
- Renal retinopathy
- Retinal vascular disorder
- Retinal vasculopathy with cerebral leukoencephalopathy and systemic manifestations
- Retinopathy caused by canthaxanthin
- Retinopathy caused by trifluoperazine
- Retinopathy due to atherosclerosis
- Retinopathy of left eye caused by hydroxychloroquine
- Retinopathy of right eye caused by hydroxychloroquine
- Small vessel cerebrovascular disease
- Tamoxifen adverse reaction
- Tamoxifen retinopathy
- Thioridazine adverse reaction

- Joubert Syndrome-. a rare genetic syndrome characterized by the hypoplasia or absence of the cerebellar vermis. signs and symptoms include rapid breathing (hyperpnea), sleep apnea, abnormal eye movements, mental retardation, and ataxia.
- Joubert Syndrome 17|JBTS17-. an autosomal recessive subtype of joubert syndrome caused by mutation(s) in the cplane1 gene, encoding ciliogenesis and planar polarity effector 1.
- Joubert Syndrome 3|JBTS3-. an autosomal recessive subtype of joubert syndrome caused by mutation(s) in the ahi1 gene, encoding jouberin.
- Joubert Syndrome 4-. a rare genetic syndrome caused by mutations in the nphp1 gene. it is characterized by the hypoplasia or absence of the cerebellar vermis. signs and symptoms include rapid breathing (hyperpnea), sleep apnea, abnormal eye movements, mental retardation, and ataxia.
- Joubert Syndrome 7|JBTS7-. an autosomal recessive sub-type of joubert syndrome caused by mutation(s) in the rpgrip1l gene, encoding a protein thought to function in programmed cell death. it is characterized by cerebellar and oculomotor apraxia, hypotonia and psychomotor delay, neonatal respiratory abnormalities, renal abnormalities, and retinal dystrophy.
- Joubert Syndrome 9|JBTS9-. an autosomal recessive subtype of joubert syndrome caused by mutation(s) in the cc2d2a gene, encoding coiled-coil and c2 domain-containing protein 2a.

The retina is a layer of tissue in the back of your eye that senses light and sends images to your brain. In the center of this nerve tissue is the macula. It provides the sharp, central vision needed for reading, driving and seeing fine detail.
Retinal disorders affect this vital tissue. They can affect your vision, and some can be serious enough to cause blindness. Examples are:
- Macular degeneration - a disease that destroys your sharp, central vision
- Diabetic eye disease
- Retinal detachment - a medical emergency, when the retina is pulled away from the back of the eye
- Retinoblastoma - cancer of the retina. It is most common in young children.
- Macular pucker - scar tissue on the macula
- Macular hole - a small break in the macula that usually happens to people over 60
- Floaters - cobwebs or specks in your field of vision
