In brief: Depends
On severity, intervention, but typically central vision is affected, peripheral vision is left intact (thus not totally blind) can be stable or progressive implantable telescope may help the right candidate with amd.

In brief: Future
In age related macular degeneration symptoms typically do not start until after the age of 50 yo.
Among the earliest symptoms are a delay in adapting to dim light situations, progressively blurry and distorted vision may follow. The vision affected is always central, so peripheral vision remains intact.

In brief: It depends
Depending on the severity of the wet or dry form, macular degeneration is generally progressive.
The rate is highly variable but with increasing severity, the central vision may become blurred and distorted while the peripheral vision remains essentially intact.
