I am in desparate need of a diagnosis for Bergmeister Papilla?

Typically Bergmeister papilla is a remnant of the fetal hyaloid artery.
Since they are on the optic nerve, where there are no photoreceptors, it
would not obscure vision. The blind spot from the optic disc would
cover that!

Anymore thoughts on this?

He states in his impression of the photos a remarkable membrane obscuring portions of the disc. Now what?

Possibly code patient's presenting symptoms?
Unfortunately, Bergmeister's Papillae doesn't have
subjective symptoms; only the doctor can see it during
fundus exam. Anyone else have a thought?

Anyone know where I can find the 1998 Medicare fee schedule? I have
searched the Federal Register to no avail.

What do you recommend I do then without a dx?

I don't believe that there is a diagnosis code for
Bergmeister's Papilla aka glial veil.
