From a ophthalmologic report from an eye clinic in Munich. I know what the words are but what is this actually saying?

Shane, I don't think the order of 'peripher' and 'zirkulär' makes any difference to the meaning.

Notes to answerer
Asker: For the other eye (left eye) it says 'Netzhaut peripher zirkulär anliegend' (peripher and zirkulär changed around). There is no change in meaning here is there?


Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  lirka: how about: "peripheral retina attached around the entire circumference"? Just because 'peripheral retina' is an established term, and you can avoid the adverb
