ICD-10-CM Code H34.12
Central retinal artery occlusion, left eye
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
H34.12 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of central retinal artery occlusion, left eye. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code H34 is used to code Ocular ischemic syndrome
Ocular ischemic syndrome is the constellation of ocular signs and symptoms secondary to severe, chronic arterial hypoperfusion to the eye. Amaurosis fugax is a form of acute vision loss caused by reduced blood flow to the eye that may be a warning sign of an impending stroke. Consequently, those with transient blurring of vision are advised to urgently seek medical attention for a thorough evaluation of the carotid artery. Anterior segment ischemic syndrome is a similar ischemic condition of anterior segment usually seen in post-surgical cases. Retinal arterial occlusion leads to rapid death of retinal cells, thereby resulting in severe loss of vision.
