Doctor

I asking this for my father. He's 58 yrs old. He has diabetes for last few years. His sugar levels are above normal level.  For a few months he's been complaining about problems related to vision. Will it be retinopathy caused due to diabetes? How can it be cured?

Vision problems are related to diabetes.
your fathers symptoms can be due to retinopathy, but other conditions like cataract or refractive error are also possible.
you can consult an eye doctor and get properly checked for those conditions
more important is make sure that his blood sugar is under control
