In brief: No

You obviously have a very minor astigmatism.
Many people, some of the nicest and brightest (inc. me, ahem!) have much worse astigmatism which is correctable with glasses. It does not cause lazy eye or blindness.

In brief: No

Lazy eye is weakness of the eye muscles can't happen from astigmatism.
You can't get blind from astigmatism also.
