Dear Amit,
IF your Father in Law really did have good control of Diabetes on lifestyle & diet control alone, he is unlikely to have developed diabetic retinopathy. However, there could be other problems like branch retinal vein occlusion or Age related macular degeneration which could be causing this problem. However, if his retina is examined by a retina specialist, there should be absolutely no ambiguity to the nature of the problem. One thing is certain, he needs to be seen fairly urgently, as this damage could become worse.
Best Wishes,
Dr. Upsham Goel

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that your father in law might be having Diabetic retinopathy as he is having diabetes untreated since long.
Consult retinal expert and after fundoscopy and other investigations he will be able to give opinion about vision.
Ok and bye.
