What Does 1 Cylindrical Power Of Eye Mean
Eye prescription is +0.25x-1.0. So my power is "+", but spherical equivalent is "-". Am i myopic or hyperopic? Is near or far vision better?

With current data, i couldnt tell you whether near vision or distance vision is better, depends on whether you have presbyopia or not. If you don't have presybiopia, then they are equal.

I have given a 0.5 cylindrical power in my left eye with 20° axis .

Astigmatism tends to have more symptoms of blur of too high and especially at nighttime. 0.5 cylinder at 020 degrees axis is low order, but oblique in nature, which also tends to be more symptomatic. Have your eyes monitored. You can always wear spectacles if your vision is blurry. ...Read more
