H18.59 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other hereditary corneal dystrophies. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code H185 is used to code Fuchs' dystrophy

Fuchs' dystrophy (pronounced fooks-DIS-trÉ™-fe), also known as Fuchs' corneal endothelial dystrophy or FCED, is a slowly progressing corneal dystrophy that usually affects both eyes and is slightly more common in women than in men. Although doctors can often see early signs of Fuchs' dystrophy in people in their 30s and 40s, the disease rarely affects vision until people reach their 50s and 60s.
