The official standard for Third Class is 20/40 in each eye separately with or without correction.  If correction is required, the corrective lenses must be worn while flying.  However, there is a protocol to allow pilots who meet the standard in one eye only to obtain a Statement of Demonstrated Ability (aka "waiver"j and get a Third Class despite the problem  See: (see paragraph E.4))
