Pediatrician sees a patient for redness/discharge of eye and does an eye swab.

Pediatrician chooses ICD-9 code 379.93 (redness or discharge of eye).

What cpt code is used for eye swab?

If pediatrician removing some foreign body out of the eye using swab, can be coded from the series 65205-65222 accordingly, and if the physician only cleaning the discharge with the help of swab then it will be the part of visit pediatrician. ICD-9 CM is correct.
