Hi there,
Any short form or slang term for astigmatism, hyperopia, and myopia? How to read lenses prescription? For example, I have myopia (in our country, we use degree: 500 degree) and astigmatism (100 degree) and hyperopia (100 degree)

Thanks
pete

Not sure about the last two terms, as I am not an optician. But I am shortsighted as well. We do not really use myopia in common parlance.
