    I'm dealing with a contact lense issue where the optical location I had my eye appointment and ordered my contacts through has failed to provide me with the contacts I've ordered. My trial lenses have lapsed and I was never given my prescription however the technician that was looking for a new pair of trial lenses in my prescription said I had an odd fitting that can be hard to find but she "thinks" it's OK if the axis to my lenses is off by 20 but then told me not to tell anyone she gave them to me.
    My correct pair reads as:
    Right Eye: SPH -4.50/ CYL -1.25/ AX 070
    Left Eye: SPH-4.00/ CYL -0.75/ AX 110

    The lenses that "should work" that she gave me are:
    Right Eye: SPH -4.50/CYL -1.25/ AX 090
    Left Eye: SPH -4.00/CYL -0.75? AX 090

    I've been trying to do research into whether or not this axis deviation is acceptable as I have a terrible time with distance focusing and are worried these lenses would shift. Can anyone please advise?
