Dear user Cylindrical power is prescribed for correction of astigmatism. You need to undergo simple refraction tests to find out the correct refractive power. A simple test to determine the presence of astigmatism is by stenopaeic slit test. You can ask for the test next time when you visit your optometrist. You will be comfortable when the correction for your refractive error is correct.
