2014 ICD-9-CM Diagnosis Code 367.2
- There are 3 ICD-9-CM codes below 367.2 that define this diagnosis in greater detail. Do not use this code on a reimbursement claim.
- Optical defect in which refractive power is not uniform in all directions (meridians); light rays entering the eye are bent unequally by different meridians, which prevents formation of a sharp image focus on the retina.
- Unequal curvature of the refractive surfaces of the eye. Thus a point source of light cannot be brought to a point focus on the retina but is spread over a more or less diffuse area. This results from the radius of curvature in one plane being longer or shorter than the radius at right angles to it. (Dorland, 27th ed)
