You should return to the 'eye doctor' that did the glasses test for a repeat refraction and an evaluation of your problem. Astigmatism corrections are often hard to adjust to especially if a person has not worn glasses before. If a person cannot adjust often the glasses prescription will be cut back for instance only correct half the astigmatism now and in a year increase to a full prescription. I think this is more of a problem than the difference in the lens material (eg polycarbonate).
