    Use CPT 66020 for reformation of anterior chamber and for pupilloplasty if done with a laser to improve vision, use 66762 (Iridoplasty by photocoagulation and if glaucoma was the cause, and the procedure was done without a laser, use CPT 66630 (Iridectomy, with corneoscleral or corneal section; sector for glaucoma); if a laser was used, use CPT 66761 (Iridotomy/iridectomy by laser surgery (e.g., for glaucoma).

    CPT 66852 is for removal of lens material; pars plana approach, with or without vitrectomy.

    ICD-10 for vitreous hemorrhage- H43.10, H43.11, H43.12, H43.13 (select the side accordingly); choroidal hemorrhage- H31.411, H31.412, H31.413, H31.419 (select the side accordingly); temporal chorioretinal scar- H31.091, H31.092, H31.093, H31.099 (select the side accordingly).
