- This symposium highlights new International Classification of Diseases, ICD-11. Physicians agree that the present coding systems are outdated regardless of ICD-10 or ICD-9-CM. Approved by WHO in 2008, International Council of Ophthalmology formed the Ophthalmology Topic Advisory Group to create the ICD-11 on the Internet through the Collaborative Authoring Tool Platform similar to Wikipedia with a strict editorial system. It incorporates definitions and linkages to other terminologies such as SNOWMED-CT. It will be readily integrated into routine practice in different settings including primary care, more specialized clinical care and research. The symposium addresses three main aspects of ICD-11, Scientific evidence, Clinical and health system utility, and Public health usefulness and how they would impact our future ophthalmic practice. Unique educational applications of its multiple lingual representations and disorders of visual sense that features our chapter will be detailed.
