It would probably depend on what a medical doctor says...

This is a question that needs to be directed to the agency you're applying with.  Standards differ everywhere, and what may pass medically with one agency may not with another.

Looked up a bit about the condition, and you get sensitivity to light, blurred vision, and sometimes see multiple images. It gets more severe in the 20's and 30's. I am going to say it is unlikely, but I will not say impossible. Good luck to you sir.
