Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Hello
It seems from the history that you are having cylindrical power. This is called as astigmatism. This cannot be reduced by yoga or eye exercises. This requires treatment by use of spectacles or contact lenses or by refractive laser surgery.
Hence I advice you to continue the use of spectacles and do consult your optometrist or ophthalmologist for prescription of contact lenses or for refractive laser surgeries like Lasik.

Thank you
