Corneal Opacity And Other Disorders Of Cornea

H18.423 Band Keratopathy

Band keratopathy is a corneal disease derived from the appearance of calcium on the central cornea.

H18.831-833 Recurrent Erosion of Cornea

A corneal erosion is characterized by a spontaneous detachment of the basal cells of the corneal epithelium from the underlying basement membrane.

H18.821-823 Corneal Disorder due to Contact Lens

Contact lens wear can cause a change in corneal physiology, which may lead to lead to epithelial, stromal, and endothelial compromise.

H18.731-733 Descemetocele

Descemetocele involves the anterior bulging or rupture of an intact Descemet's membrane through a defect of the overlying corneal stroma and epithelium.

H18.711-713 Pellucid Marginal Degeneration

Pellucid marginal degeneration is a condition characterized by peripheral corneal thinning and corneal ectasia.

H18.621-623 Keratoconus Acute Hydrops

Corneal hydrops occurs after a rupture in Descemet's membrane and is characterized by severe corneal edema.

H18.611-613 Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a disease of the cornea. It is characterized by progressive thinning of the corneal stroma and a progressive steepening in the shape of the cornea.

H18.59 Posterior Polymorphous Dystrophy

A form of corneal dystrophy characterized by a metaplasia of endothelial cells.

H18.59 Anterior Corneal Dystrophies

Epithelial basement membrane dystrophy (EBMD) is a degenerative condition of the anterior layer of the cornea.

H18.51 Endothelial Corneal Dystrophy

Endothelial corneal dystrophy is characterized by corneal guttata and other morphologic abnormalities of the endothelium.
