H51.20 is a billable ICD code used to specify a diagnosis of internuclear ophthalmoplegia, unspecified eye. A 'billable code' is detailed enough to be used to specify a medical diagnosis.
The ICD code H512 is used to code Internuclear ophthalmoplegia
Internuclear ophthalmoplegia (INO) is a disorder of conjugate lateral gaze in which the affected eye shows impairment of adduction. When an attempt is made to gaze contralaterally (relative to the affected eye), the affected eye adducts minimally, if at all. The contralateral eye abducts, however with nystagmus. Additionally, the divergence of the eyes leads to horizontal diplopia. That is, if the right eye is affected the patient will "see double" when looking to the left, seeing two images side-by-side. Convergence is generally preserved.
