water behind the retina

my father is 42 years old.some days back he could see a grey smoky cloud moving in his right eye..he went to an eye doctor and after m.r.i and angiography,the doctor said that water is blocked behind the retina..but he did not gave any medicine.he just said that water will dry up autumatically in 4 months.he prescribed only one eye drop calledNEVANAC for pain and vitamins capsule.my father is diabetic and has high blood pressure......my question is that will the water dry up by itself or a surgery will be done.should i consult another doctor.is the diseaese treatable.will it affect the eye sight.

Why you description is not at all precise the condition that most would fit is diabetic macular edema.

You can search that term and read about it but you best bet it to get more specific information from the Eye MD

NEVANAC is a nonsteroidal antiinflammatory used to get rid of the fluid (edema)
