ICD-10-CM Code H40.11X4
Primary open-angle glaucoma, indeterminate stage
Billable CodeBillable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
H40.11X4 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of primary open-angle glaucoma, indeterminate stage. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code H401 is used to code Pseudoexfoliation syndrome
Pseudoexfoliation syndrome (other names: Exfoliation glaucoma, Pseudoexfoliation glaucoma, Pseudoexfoliation of the lens, Exfoliation syndrome), sometimes abbreviated as PEX, is an aging–related systemic disease manifesting itself primarily in the eyes which is characterized by the accumulation of microscopic granular amyloid-like protein fibers. Its cause is unknown, although there is speculation that there may be a genetic basis. It is more prevalent in women than men, and in persons past the age of seventy. Its prevalence in different human populations varies; for example, it is prevalent in Scandinavia. The buildup of protein clumps can block normal drainage of the eye fluid called the aqueous humor and can cause, in turn, a buildup of pressure leading to glaucoma and loss of vision. As worldwide populations become older because of shifts in demography, PEX may become a matter of greater concern.
