In brief: Nearsightedness

This is probably a reference to how much nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism you have.

In brief: Eye power

this is the number used to specify the lens power that the optician needs to fabricate your eyeglasses.
It is different from the Snellen fraction (like 20/20) used to measure the visual level.
