ICD-10-CM Code H50.022
Monocular esotropia with A pattern, left eye

BILLABLE
Billable Code
Billable codes are sufficient justification for admission to an acute care hospital when used a principal diagnosis.
| ICD-10 from 2011 - 2016

H50.022 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of monocular esotropia with A pattern, left eye. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.


The ICD code H500 is used to code Esotropia

Esotropia (from Greek eso meaning "inward" and trope meaning "a turning"), is a form of strabismus, or "squint," in which one or both eyes turns inward. The condition can be constantly present, or occur intermittently, and can give the affected individual a "cross-eyed" appearance. Esotropia is sometimes erroneously called “lazy eye,” which describes the condition of amblyopia—a reduction in vision of one or both eyes that is not the result of any pathology of the eye and cannot be resolved by the use of corrective lenses. Amblyopia can, however, arise as a result of esotropia occurring in childhood: In order to relieve symptoms of diplopia or double vision, the child's brain will ignore or “suppress” the image from the esotropic eye, which when allowed to continue untreated will lead to the development of amblyopia. Treatment options for esotropia include glasses to correct refractive errors (see accommodative esotropia below), the use of prisms and/or orthoptic exercises and/or eye muscle surgery.

Monocular esotropia with A pattern (approximate match)

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 H50.022 and a single ICD9 code, 378.02 is an approximate match for comparison and conversion purposes.
