German term or phrase: Augeninnenhaut
In a list of causes of red eyes: Flaechenhafte Blutung unter die Augeninnenhaut bei Bluthochdruck

Explanation:
Here is the description of this part of human eye from Encyclopedia Britannica:

======
The retina is the part of the eye that receives the light and converts it into chemical energy. The chemical energy activates nerves that conduct the
messages out of the eye into the higher regions of the brain. The retina is a complex nervous structure, being, in essence, an outgrowth of the
forebrain.
======

The question is in reflection of direct rays of light (e.g., from photographic flash) from the so-called eye-ground. Take into account also that the interior surface of a human eye is covered by light-sensitive thin shell called RETINA .

retina


Explanation:
There are 4 different dermas within the eye: cornea, conjunctiva, and scleraderma, choroid, retina. Conjunctiva or "Bindehaut" is the outermost layer of derma, sclera
is next. Then comes (from the outside to the inside) the choroid (Augapfelgefaesshaut oder Aderhaut) and next the retina (Netzhaut).
The retina=innermost layer of the eye, which receives image transmission throught the lens and is the immediate instrument of vision . . .
