Fundus Photo Billing

Fundus Photos

Optic nerve head analysis with a scanning laser device is superior to a single two-dimensional photo of the optic disc. Scanning laser devices can document precise cup depth, volume and shape. They have revolutionized early detection of glaucomatous optic nerve head topography. Yet, fundus photos can document other findings, such as peripapillary atrophy, which should be followed in all glaucoma patients. These images should be taken annually so progression can be evaluated. Also, fundus photos are indispensable for following disc hemorrhages.


You can bill for fundus photos for glaucoma twice a year. Typical reimbursement is about $65 to $80.
