by Heidi
(Iowa)

My prescription is Cylinder -450 and -375,

Axis 172 and 177

How can I figure this out since the Cylinder is from -.75 to -2.25
and the Axis are by tens from 10-180.

Please help me out

Astigmatism prescription
by: Helen (website owner)

Sounds like you have a severe astigmatism given your prescription which is outside the common -0.75 to -2.25 on many lenses like Acuvue Advance for astigmatism.

It basically means that the lens you are looking to buy does not come in your prescription.

Go back to your optician to check which brands of contact lens are appropriate for your eyes and then check to see what precriptions they are available in.
