Weak spot on the retina
I am 63 years old (male) and am a mild diabetic for the last five years. I use metformin 500mg - once a day.
I get my eyes tested yearly. After my test today, the doctor told me that there is no diabetic retinopathy and my eye pressure is ok 14-14.
He also told me there is a weak spot on the retina of my left, but not to worry about it. He asked me to see him if there are any changes in my vision.

Can you explain a little further what is the cause of this weak spot and what are the precautions/medication I should take

This is a very non specific term.  It can mean a thin retina, lattice degeneration, etc.  No particular precautions except direct trauma to the eye.  See you doctor ASAP if you have the onset of flashes and or floaters.
