Our Dr. performed a yag laser to remove residual retrolenticular cortical material and membrane formation after cataract surgery. I am unsure how to code this.

The most appropriate CPT code for the given scenario would be: 66821.
You can use the ICD code from 366.5x (depending upon the operative report specification).
