'tenon's capsule cyst'

There is no direct code for tenon capsule excision. Nearby codes could be 65400 / 67412. Let us consult with SuperCoder's Ophthalmology coding editor for a better answer. Would get back soon. Thank you for your patience.

We probably need more information as to the location of the cyst within the tenon's capsule. Right now we are coming up with (after discussion with our Ophthalmology expert) :

67599 Unlisted procedure, orbit


66770 Destruction of cyst or lesion iris or ciliary body (nonexcisional procedure)

An operative/procedure report would certainly help.
