German term or phrase:retinale Fältelung
"Reproduktionsstudien an Tieren zeigten unter XXXdosen, die die empfohlene Höchstdosis für Menschen deutlich überschritten, eine verminderte Fertilität (Hinweis: nach Dosen, die die empfohlene Höchstdosis für Menschen um das etwa 4-fache überstiegen), erhöhte embryofetale Mortalität, vermindertes fetales Körpergewicht und vermehrtes Auftreten von fetalen Augenanomalien (*retinale Fältelung*). "
Again my back translation, but this time no proposed English term. Don't if "retinale Fältelung" is from the original German or is translation from whatever the original language was. A good bit of googling with "retinal" hasn't turned up anything definitive.
TIA for your help.
Reference information: Retinal dysplasia is a type of retinal malformation. The word "dysplasia" simply means "a defective development of an organ or structure". Retinal dysplasia occurs when the 2 primitive layers of the retina do not form together properly. Mild dysplasia manifests as folds in the inner retinal layer. These are called "retinal folds". In "geographic" retinal dysplasia there are larger areas of defective retinal development. In the severe form of dysplasia, the 2 retinal layers do not come together at all and retinal detachment occurs. Retinal dysplasia is not progressive. It is a congenital defect and animals are born with as severe a condition as they will ever get. Retinal dysplasia can be detected as early as 6-8 weeks on a CERF examination. However, because the size of the eye is small and young puppies are often wiggling during examination, a 6 month recheck is recommended in order for the ophthalmologist to better see the back of the eye.

Reference: Retinal dysplasia
Reference information: Retinal dysplasia is an eye disease affecting the retina of animals and, less commonly, humans. It is usually a nonprogressive disease and can be caused by viral infections, drugs, vitamin A deficiency, or genetic defects. Retinal dysplasia is characterized by folds or rosettes (round clumps) of the retinal tissue.
