In brief: Maybe
If your eyes are healthy and your cornea is not irregular, then you can probably wear contact lenses.
See your local eye doctor for a contact lens evaluation and fitting.

It's best to check with an eye care provider to see if contact lenses are a good idea and come in the power needed.
Depending on astigmatism, a toric contact may be needed. Also the corneal curvature may affect the ability to wear contacts as well as the tear film / dry eye, etc.
