Hi, as per limited documentation, the following CPT codes should be appropriate:

Removal of exposed Ahmed valve tube 65920

Anterior ocular surface reconstruction with a Tutoplast patch 66225

Lavage of anterior chamber for evacuation of hyphema 65815

However, it is strongly suggested to correlate the codes with the details of the procedure performed, as the codes might differ. Please share some procedure/case details in case of any further clarity. Thank you.
