Optometry Medical Billing Services cater to a wide range of eye care services and conditions affecting vision, regardless of the underlying cause. Here’s an in-depth breakdown of the different types of services commonly addressed by Optometrists::

Comprehensive Eye Examinations:

This forms the foundation of optometric care, involving a thorough assessment of visual acuity, eye health, and potential vision problems. It may include:

  • Ocular health evaluation: Examining the internal and external structures of the eye for signs of diseases like cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, or macular degeneration.
  • Refraction testing: Determining the appropriate corrective lens prescription (eyeglasses or contact lenses) to improve vision.

Vision Therapy:

A specialized form of treatment designed to address specific vision problems and improve visual skills, such as:

  • Convergence insufficiency: Difficulty focusing both eyes on near objects.
  • Amblyopia (lazy eye): Reduced vision in one eye due to abnormal development in early childhood.
  • Strabismus (crossed eyes): Misalignment of the eyes, affecting depth perception and coordination.

Low Vision Rehabilitation:

Contact Lens Services:

Diagnosis codes:

Utilizing ICD-10 (International Classification of Diseases, Tenth Revision) codes to identify the specific vision problems or eye conditions necessitating optometry services.

 

Staying Up-to-Date:

CPT, HCPCS, and ICD-10 codes are updated annually. Staying informed of these updates is crucial for accurate optometry coding.
