H43.3: Other vitreous opacities
The vitreous body in your eye is cloudy.
Inside the eye is the vitreous body. The vitreous body is transparent. It consists of a type of gel, and it almost entirely fills the eye.
Your vitreous body is not transparent in some places. Your vitreous body may have thickened in those places.
When there are cloudy areas in the vitreous body, one may see small gray specks moving. These specks are sometimes compared with flies flying.
On medical documents, the ICD code is often appended by letters that indicate the diagnostic certainty or the affected side of the body.
- G: Confirmed diagnosis
- V: Tentative diagnosis
- Z: Condition after
