Diabetic retina issue after joint replacement


I’m here to ask a question for a friend who’s 84 and who’s had type 2 diabetes since the late 90s.

This is his wife’s question:

“Has anyone with diabetic wet retina issues had increased or complete loss of vision in affected eye or eyes following joint replacement?”

He had a shoulder replacement about seven years ago.

They have asked their orthopedist and eye doctor and no one seems to know the answer.

I tried googling for info and came up empty.

Thanks much for any insight or links.

Trying to help them gain knowledge.
