Thank you for your question,
For use of vitrectomy in retinal detachment surgery, we will see for code range 67108 to 67113.
CPT 67040 is generally used to repair a macular hole or treat diabetic macular edema.
To give more clarity on this, you may send us the diagnosis and little more detailing about procedure.
