post cataract surgery, pt developed shallowing of anterior chamber. Dr went back into OR and A.T. was inflated and micochol miostat was use because pupilary constriction was desired.
Can I bill 66020 with modifier 78?

I would recommend using 66030-78 here as micochol miostat is a medication not a filler like viscoelastic.
