What does my eyeglass lens prescription mean?!
Question: What does my eyeglass lens prescription mean?
I also want to know whats my contact prescription will be. I know my bass curve for my eyes already.
It's a judgment call whether you correct for the astigmatism or use a spherical equivalent. If we went with the latter the contact lens Rx would be -4.25 OU. If we went with the former we would have to first place a toric lens on the eye to see how the axis positions before computing the contact lens Rx.

It is kind of unusual for someone to need the exact same prescription in each eye and even both eyes needing exactly 180 axis! Anyway, the -450 means you are moderately nearsighted and the -75 means you have a small amount of astigmatism. Because your prescription is stronger than -400, they will make your contacts slightly less strong to account for the fact that they sit right on your eyes (not speced way like glasses).
