    Do you know your prescription? Do you have an astigmatism?

    mine say..

    50(square thingy) 15 - 132

    i reckon, its just measurements to do with the width of your glasses, etc

    The first number is the lens width, the second is the bridge width, and the last one is the length of the arms of your glasses.
