Below is a list summarizing the CPT codes for vitreous procedures on the posterior segment of the eye.
CPT Code 67005
CPT 67005 describes the partial removal of the vitreous using an anterior approach such as an open sky technique or limbal incision.
CPT Code 67010
CPT 67010 describes the removal of the vitreous through an anterior approach, such as an open sky technique or limbal incision, with subtotal removal using mechanical vitrectomy.
CPT Code 67015
CPT 67015 describes the aspiration or release of vitreous, subretinal, or choroidal fluid through a pars plana approach (posterior sclerotomy).
CPT Code 67025
CPT 67025 describes the injection of a vitreous substitute through a pars plana or limbal approach, with or without aspiration, as a separate procedure.
CPT Code 67027
CPT 67027 describes the implantation of an intravitreal drug delivery system (e.g., ganciclovir implant) along with the concomitant removal of vitreous.
CPT Code 67028
CPT 67028 describes intravitreal injection of a pharmacologic agent as a separate procedure.
CPT Code 67030
CPT 67030 describes discission of vitreous strands (without removal) using a pars plana approach.
CPT Code 67031
CPT 67031 describes laser surgery (1 or more stages) for severing vitreous strands, vitreous face adhesions, sheets, membranes, or opacities.
CPT Code 67036
CPT 67036 describes a mechanical vitrectomy using a pars plana approach.
CPT Code 67039
CPT 67039 describes a vitrectomy performed with a pars plana approach and focal endo-laser photocoagulation.
CPT Code 67040
CPT 67040 describes a vitrectomy with a mechanical pars plana approach and endo-laser pan-retinal photocoagulation.
CPT Code 67041
CPT 67041 describes a vitrectomy with a mechanical pars plana approach and the removal of preretinal cellular membrane, such as a macular pucker.
CPT Code 67042
CPT 67042 describes a vitrectomy, mechanical, pars plana approach with removal of the internal limiting membrane of the retina, including intraocular tamponade if performed, such as air, gas, or silicone oil.
CPT Code 67043
CPT 67043 describes a vitrectomy, mechanical, pars plana approach with removal of the subretinal membrane, including intraocular tamponade and laser photocoagulation if performed.
