ICD-10-CM Code for Exudative age-related macular degeneration H35. 32.
Nonexudative AMD is characterized by the degeneration of the retina and the choroid in the posterior pole due to either atrophy or RPE detachment. The atrophy is generally preceded (or coincident in some cases) by the presence of yellow extracellular deposits adjacent to the basal surface of the RPE called drusen.

361.9Short description: Retinal detachment NOS. ICD-9-CM 361.9 is a billable medical code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis on a reimbursement claim, however, 361.9 should only be used for claims with a date of service on or before September 30, 2015.
Most people with AMD have dry AMD (also called atrophic AMD). This is when the macula gets thinner with age. Dry AMD happens in 3 stages: early, intermediate, and late.
The main difference between wet vs dry macular degeneration is simple: dry macular degeneration is the more common type of eye disease and does less damage to your vision while wet macular degeneration can result in serious vision loss.
Under ICD-10-CM, the term “Osteopenia” is indexed to ICD-10-CM subcategory M85. 8- Other specified disorders of bone density and structure, within the ICD-10-CM Alphabetic Index.

Retinal detachment with giant retinal tear, left eye H33. 032 is a billable/specific ICD-10-CM code that can be used to indicate a diagnosis for reimbursement purposes. The 2022 edition of ICD-10-CM H33. 032 became effective on October 1, 2021.
Macular detachment was defined as detachment involving the fovea with any resulting loss of central Snellen visual acuity. The series was an unbiased selection of cases under the care of two consultants (THW: n=110 and DAHL: n=75) in a vitreoretinal unit of a teaching hospital.

The symptoms for wet macular degeneration include the following: • visual distortions; • decrease in or loss of central vision; and. • central blurry spot. Diagnosis. Macular degeneration is diagnosed during a thorough eye examination. The physician will look for drusen and mottled pigmentation in the macula.
The physician will look for drusen and mottled pigmentation in the macula. In addition, the physician may have the patient look at an Amsler grid , which looks like a checkerboard. This test can determine the location and extent of the macular damage.
Macular degeneration is a chronic eye condition that occurs because of deterioration of the tissue in the macula—the central portion of the retina responsible for central vision. Sometimes referred to as age-related macular degeneration , it is the leading cause of severe vision loss in people aged 60 and older.
The physician may also choose to perform a fluorescein angiography to evaluate the extent of the damage to the macula. Another test that may be done is optical coherence tomography which identifies the area of retinal thickening or thinning. It is extremely beneficial to diagnosis macular degeneration early.
Although it does not lead to total blindness, it can cause blurred central vision or a blind spot in the center of the visual field. Typically, the condition does not affect peripheral vision. Macular degeneration is a gradually progressive disease that is nonreversible.
Although the damage from macular degeneration cannot be reversed, early treatment can slow progression.
