Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically your eyes cannot be said to be normal because you have mild myopia (minus eyes) and mild astigmatism (cylindrical eyes). However, minor disorders like this do not always need to be treated with the use of glasses. Some experts still categorize astigmatism below 0.5 diopter and myopia below 0.25 diopter as normal eyes, so the use of glasses is not really needed. Glasses are recommended when the disorder is above 1 diopter.
However, if you do experience disturbances that are very disturbing vision, you are allowed to use glasses. Some people who use cylindrical glasses for minor astigmatism disorders often feel dizzy when using glasses. Consider the positive and negative sides if you want to wear glasses, and you can discuss further with your eye doctor if you really decide to use glasses.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
