Really???: That is virtually a no prescription glasses! i would not have personally placed 0.25 diopters of astigmatism in any glasses! it is too little to help and more likely to irritate one's vision. The eye strain may be your issue! wear the glasses solid for 1-2 weeks. If not better, they may need to be redone without the astigmatism.
