Psych, IM, IM subspecialties, PM&R, maybe anesthesiology. Surgical fields, pathology, and radiology all require good eyesight.

In peds, you have to look in little ears a lot…. I think you will have to talk to people in the specialties that interest you, and ask whether they know anyone with low vision in that specialty.
 
All the specialties I can think of were listed by LunaOri. But aye, bioinformatics honestly kinda a stacked move

They'll just look through the otoscope with their functional eye.
Any surgical specialty requires depth perception, which you really don't have with monocular vision.
Nonsurgical fields should be available to you
 
Thank you guys for the replies and support! It’s nice to hear that there are specialties I can do! I was really worried my vision would stop me from being able to become a physician. I really want to inspire people like me, and show them that it’s possible!

Document your accommodations requests and how they were addressed throughout your education. Ask for accommodations throughout this application process. You must show you can complete the technical requirements of medical education wherever you go. Nothing is impossible, but medical education technology can be tricky.
