ICD Code H02.42 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the four child codes of H02.42 that describes the diagnosis 'myogenic ptosis of eyelid' in more detail.


The ICD code H024 is used to code Ptosis (eyelid)

Ptosis /ˈtoʊsɪs/ (from Greek Ptosis "Blepharoptosis" or πτῶσις, to "fall") is a drooping or falling of the upper eyelid. The drooping may be worse after being awake longer, when the individual's muscles are tired. This condition is sometimes called "lazy eye", but that term normally refers to amblyopia. If severe enough and left untreated, the drooping eyelid can cause other conditions, such as amblyopia or astigmatism. This is why it is especially important for this disorder to be treated in children at a young age, before it can interfere with vision development.
