    (1) Do "normal" RGPs correct for astigmatism, or are there "special"
    RGBs for that ?

    (2) Does having astigmatism change the cost for RGPs ?

    if it matters, here is my eyeglass rx:
    OD -7.00 -0.75x15 (this eye has amblyopia and is useless to me)
    OS -6.50 -1.50x175 (an older RX from a different doc has the cyl at 2.00)

    (3) am i right in assuming that this level of astigmatism in the good eye
    would require correction and that regular soft contacts just wouldnt do ?

    Thanks very much
