Medical questionnaire

#1
I completed my medical questionnaire and my optician declared me fit to join the navy however I have a thing called a pterygium but I can perfectly blink and see fine it’s not affecting me. My optician stated that I have it on my medical. Will it make me get rejected from joining the navy?

It is not listed under eye disorders on this document (page 3):

However, it does say:
Any abnormalities of the eye or visual system (congenital, traumatic or pathological) may be cause for rejection even though visual function is within the standard limits, a decision regarding visual fitness for duty must then be made by a Service consultant ophthalmologist.
