Hello Pu T Ra,
Where do you check your eyesight sharply? Have you explained the results of your eye examination? The cylindrical eye is one of the refractive eye disorders where the cornea is uneven so the vision becomes shaded or double. The cylindrical eye is corrected with cylindrical lensed glasses and can be treated with surgical procedures such as LASIK.
For the strength of a cylindrical lens is usually written in accordance with the results of the examination in the form of numbers (accompanied by a minus sign if there is a minus eye, or plus if accompanied by a plus eye), besides that it also writes the axis / orientation of the cylinder, usually 0-180 degrees according to the results of the examination as well. The prescription glasses from the eye doctor who contain information about the strength of the lens will be read by the optician / optician. The optician will then make the glasses according to the doctor's prescription.
For information 6/75, what does 6/75 or 6 / 7.5 mean? Usually writing 6/75 information refers to the patient's visual acuity. 6/75 means that people with normal vision can see the writing clearly from a distance of 75 meters, while you can only see the same writing with a distance of 6 meters. Likewise, if it means 6 / 7.5 means that people with normal vision can see the writing within 7.5 meters while you can only see writing at a distance of 6 meters. Normal vision is 6/6. To achieve this normal vision required correction, for example with glasses or contact lenses with lens strength according to the results of the examination.
To be more precise and clear you can discuss again with the doctor who examined you.
Hope it helps you,
