English term or phrase: retinal sheen
Ritvo et al (1986) and Creel et al (1989) found decreased function of the rods in a study of autistic people, including a retinal sheen, and noted that many such individuals tend to use peripheral vision because of this. A number of case reports describe over-sensitivity to light and blurred vision (Sperry, 1998; Gillberg & Coleman, 1992, p.29; O’Neill & Jones, 1997).

Brillo retiniano
Explanation:
Sheen se suele traducir por "brillo", como en la distrofia en brillo fenestrado (fenestrated-sheen dystrophy). Aquí también es válido. Quiere decir que hay una lesión en el centro de la retina, que es la zona de máxima visión y donde enfocamos el punto que nos interesa ver, y que esa lesión es brillante cuando se examina con un oftalmoscopio.
