I will choose A) Retinitis pigmentosa-(see the pigmented area along the circumference?) Also:
(1) macular degeneration affects central vision first
(2) glaucoma does not normally have hyperpigmentation in periphery
(3) the rest of choices do not just cause peripheral vision loss in the early stage, in that they affect peripheral just as much as central vision
