Depends : The most common symptom would be a variable blur of sight, but when drying conditions occur, those dystrophies that have elevated cells can also produce itch and watering.

I hope no adversity: Lutein is present in spinach and other dark leafy vegetables and when we eat it, our body makes zeaxantin. Both of these chemicals appear to be essential for healthy macular function (reading and color). Macular degeneration was studied by the national eye institute using a vitamin combination in the lat '80s and this study is being repeated using both lutein and zeaxanthin as well as fish oil.

Not yet: There may be a way someday to get stem cells to change genetic "faults", but not yet. That would be more than homeopathy would be interested in, i expect, but medical science is very interested in finding ways to correct genetic problems.
