Astigmatism eyeglasses Vertical vein distortion, liking, distance issues?

I just picked up some glasses a few days ago, for the first time in a few years. I own astigmatism, worse in the left eye than the right.

I have notice some very strange things with my glasses. The two most perceptible are

1) Vertical lines are slanted inward. If I look at my computer screen with the glasses, it looks approaching a trapezoid rather than a rectangle, no matter the angle or part of the lenses I look at it through. It looks approaching the top of the screen is not as wide as the bottom of the screen.

In extra, I got a bunch of graph paper and drew squares with the specs on and then with them off. What appears to be a dependable square to me with the glasses on is actually charitable of slanted to the right. Circular plates look distorted too. Kind of like a mild egg shape.

2) Vertical things like walls, columns etc appear like they are tendency toward me at 45 degrees. Not in a bendy way approaching the light is curving towards the edge of the lens, but just sloping forward. It doesn't matter what angle I look at the object with.

I enjoy had the glasses checked for proper milling, but still. Is this normal near astigmatism? I also lack the same kind of depth perception I used to own. Also, they do not help very much with far away things, resembling being able to read road signs etc.

yes it is normal. astigmatism routine you have the irregular curve of the cornea also known as a refractive disorder. For astigmatism, special corrective lenses called toric lenses are prescribed. Toric lenses own greater light bending power in one direction than the other which helps refract the lantern evenly into the astigmatic eye. you cant see far away things most likely because you didnt need help beside that before so the doctor didnt prescribe for the glasses. if you think that you obligation help seeing far away things consult your doctor again. hope this helps.
