I need CPT codes for: Lensectomy, extensive membrane peeling, retinectomy with relaxation of traction bands, internal drainage, total air-fluid exchange, endolaser photocoagulation, inferior peripheral iridectomies and injection of silicon oil.
ICD 10, Dense Cataract and a total retinal detachment on the right eye

Greetings from SuperCoder!
Please report the following codes:
- CPT code 67113
- Iridectomy is usually performed prophylactically. An eye filled with silicon oil, requires peripheral iridectomy to prevent pupillary block glaucoma. So you should not bill iridectomy separately unless there is a separate indication for doing so.
- ICD-10 CM code H26.8 for Dense Cataract
- ICD-10 CM code H33.051 for Total Retinal Detachment, right eye
Please feel free to write if you have any concern/query.
