Visit our article to learn how to read an eye prescription.

Your prescription indicates you have very high astigmatism and no myopia or hyperopia. Myopia is nearsighted/shortsighted vision. Hyperopia is farsighted/longsighted vision. Astigmatism means the cornea is not spherical like the top of a ball, but is elliptical like the back of a spoon.

You high astigmatism may indicate a vision health problem. What is your age and have members of your family required corneal transplants?
