Welcome at HCM
I have gone through your query and being your physician I completely understand your health concerns...
What is the value of axis ? You should send me the entire prescription and refraction values so that you can be properly counselled.
Normally axis values starts from 0 to 180 degree. And is used in astigmatism ( a condition relating to cornea ). Plz do attach reports and photograph of prescription.
