I have only had one eye for many years and was a flight attendant before it happened now have received a one on one interview with airline. I just wonder if my eye will be a problem.

Let me refer you to the answer of this other question, that says a pilot may be considered for any class of medical (including First Class) with only one functional eye.
I think its fair to conclude that if a pilot can get a First Class medical with one functional eye, then you can be a flight attendant with one functional eye, assuming that you can fulfill all of the duties required.

4$\begingroup$ @camden_kid yes, click on the question that I linked in my answer and read about a famous one-eyed pilot. $\endgroup$– Devil07Jul 19, 2017 at 14:51
As far as I know, there's no FAA requirement for flight attendants to have a medical. There is a requirement in 49 USC 44728 to hold a "certificate of demonstrated proficiency", but that's it.
I couldn't find any clear details on what the certificate requires, but it looks like each operator (airline) creates their own certification program and the FAA approves it. Based on the name, I assume that it's all about whether or not you can do the job rather than any specific medical requirements.
