2021 ICD-10-CM Codes for Disorders of refraction and accommodation (H52)

Clinical Terms for Disorders of refraction and accommodation (H52)

Hypermetropia-. A refractive error in which rays of light entering the eye parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus behind the retina, as a result of the eyeball being too short from front to back. It is also called farsightedness because the near point is more distant than it is in emmetropia with an equal amplitude of accommodation.

Myopia-. A refractive error in which rays of light entering the EYE parallel to the optic axis are brought to a focus in front of the RETINA when accommodation (ACCOMMODATION, OCULAR) is relaxed. This results from an overly curved CORNEA or from the eyeball being too long from front to back. It is also called nearsightedness.

Astigmatism-. Unequal curvature of the refractive surfaces of the eye. Thus a point source of light cannot be brought to a point focus on the retina but is spread over a more or less diffuse area. This results from the radius of curvature in one plane being longer or shorter than the radius at right angles to it.

Anisometropia-. A condition of an inequality of refractive power of the two eyes.

Aniseikonia-. A condition in which the ocular image of an object as seen by one eye differs in size and shape from that seen by the other.

Presbyopia-. The normal decreasing elasticity of the crystalline lens that leads to loss of accommodation.

Ophthalmoplegia-. Paralysis of one or more of the ocular muscles due to disorders of the eye muscles, neuromuscular junction, supporting soft tissue, tendons, or innervation to the muscles.
