H50.10 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of unspecified exotropia. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code H501 is used to code Exotropia
Exotropia (from Greek exo meaning "outward" and trope meaning "a turning"), also referred to as divergent squint, is a form of strabismus where the eyes are deviated outward. It is the opposite of esotropia. People with exotropia often experience crossed diplopia. Intermittent exotropia is a fairly common condition. "Sensory exotropia" occurs in the presence of poor vision. Infantile exotropia (sometimes called "congenital exotropia") is seen during the first year of life, and is less common than "essential exotropia" which usually becomes apparent several years later.
