Landing at 300 RVR you don't even get to see any approach lights. Most Cat IIIB landings are autolands. Some Cat II setups can be hand flown using a HUD. Many Asian airlines use autoland as standard practice. This was one of the reasons for the Asiana Crash at SFO, for some carriers a visual approach is truly an emergency procedure. A high standard of airmanship is required, more so as one doesn't get many cycles.
The Boeing system does a really good job of flying the airplane and is actually a great way to learn how the plane should be landed. It takes the amount of crosswind into account and makes several corrections in bank and crab making a final adjustment in the flare.
