Hello 1. I am sorry but if retina is damaged completely then there is no hope 2. In other eye there is swelling of optic nerve.... Optic nerve swelling in diabetic and hypertensive patient suggests ischaemic optic neuropathy. Some patients with neuropathy improve provided retina is OK Can you please send me his medical records for better understanding

Vision loss in Diabetic and hypertensive patients can be due to retinal damage due to ischeamic neuropathy. If you could provide the details of the eye examination with investigation including OCT-Macula would be helpful to suggest further course of treatment
