Default turning pro

Does anyone know health requirements regarding eyesight ?
My eyesight on my left eye is only 40%. Would that cause me problems getting a pro licence in future ?

my right eye is like that mate.theres a few boxers got denied them because of eye sight so they have had to get you know that eye surgery.but i dont think just the likes of reading glasses is a problem because margarito wears glasses. obviously if your eyesight is to poor they wont pass you beause they fear that you wouldnt be able to see punches,its harder than amateur boxing medical tests.in the amateurs they dont even test you they just ask do you wear glasses,to which you lie and say "no"

Optician said it's not bad enough to have a surgery but I do need glasses for reading only. I guess I should be alrite then...
