What is the procedure code that can be used for this?

66830: Removal of cyclitic membrane if performed along with vitrectomy
Some coders may prefer to use 66999 rather than 66830, but the principal issue is that because a complete vitrectomy was performed one uses CPT code 67036 and unbundles the code pairs by appending modifier –59. The same unbundling is performed because CPT codes 67036 and 66830 are code-pair edits.
