Ophthalmologist 's  Response
I reviewed the prescription.
It shows combination of spherical and cylindrical power.
Hence this requires use of toric contact lens.
The power of the contact lens can be obtained by the conversion table which shoes the amount of power to be added or subtracted depending on the adjustment by vertex distance.

Thank you
