You may be referring to floaters or perhaps positive dysphotopsia...please be more specific...

In brief: Vitreous changes

Most common cause of black dots after surgery is PVD (posterior vitreous detachment): very common & usually no complications & resolves over time.
Diabetes though can affect retina (diabetic retinopathy, proliferative retinopathy) before & after cataract surgery. See your eyeMD: Be sure your vitreous (no blood) & retina are normal; see your eyeMD if dots persists: more @ eyedoc2020.Blogspot.com
