Coding for visual field level – Ophthalmic Professional

Use this guide to determine which VF code is most appropriate.

Visual fields (VF) are one of the most common diagnostic tests. We perform these tests for glaucoma, optic nerve disease, and functional loss from eyelids and brows, among other reasons.

This column concentrates on which of the code options are appropriate based on the type of VF ordered and done, and addresses the following topics specifically:

  • The three levels of visual field
  • Unilateral or bilateral
  • Most commmon code
  • Least common code
  • Lowest level code
