German to English translations [Non-PRO] Medical - Medical (general)
Explanation: After rethinking my original answer and researching this a bit, perhaps Kim's answer is the best after all if your context is medical and not figurative.
Here is some information that may help you:
visual field = The area in which objects can be seen when the eyes are fixed on a central point. It is generally circular in shape.
The visual field includes both the peripheral vision (the extremes of vision to the left, right, up, and down while the eyes are focusing straight ahead) and the central vision.
