H47.099 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of other disorders of optic nerve, not elsewhere classified, unspecified eye. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code H470 is used to code Ischemic optic neuropathy
Ischemic optic neuropathy (ION) is the loss of structure and function of a portion of the optic nerve due to obstruction of blood flow to the nerve (i.e. ischemia). ION is typically classified as either anterior ischemic optic neuropathy or posterior ischemic optic neuropathy according to the part of the optic nerve that is affected. People affected will often complain of a loss of visual acuity and a visual field, the latter of which is usually in the superior or inferior field.
