H25.20 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of age-related cataract, morgagnian type, unspecified eye. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code H25 is used to code Cataract

A cataract is a clouding of the lens in the eye leading to a decrease in vision. It can affect one or both eyes. Often it develops slowly. Symptoms may include faded colors, blurry vision, halos around light, trouble with bright lights, and trouble seeing at night. This may result in trouble driving, reading, or recognizing faces. Poor vision may also result in an increased risk of falling and depression. Cataracts are the cause of half of blindness and 33% of visual impairment worldwide.

This is the official approximate match mapping between ICD9 and ICD10, as provided by the General Equivalency mapping crosswalk. This means that while there is no exact mapping between this ICD10 code H25.20 and a single ICD9 code, 366.18 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
