In brief: Yes

A pilot can apply for a medical certificate under a "special issuance" procedure (a waiver of the requirement that each eye must have at least 20/20 or 20/40 vision, with glasses or contact lenses if needed).
The federal aviation administration (faa) evaluates the requests for waivers on a case-by-case basis.
