You should be able to see very well without glasses at distance,  You have very minimal prescription and just a very small amount of astigmatism.

The axis is the direction of the astigmatism.  Astigmatism is imperfect curvature of the cornea - Majority of people have at least a tiny amount, but some have significant amount.  Your have a very small amount.  Your vision should be pretty good without glasses. Probably almost 20/20  I am a little surprised at the differnce in axis between the eyes,usually a little closer.

Does the axis reading have anything to do with having a squint? Would you say vision is 20/20 in both eyes? Sorry know should have asked at the optitions but just curious.  Thanks

probably close to 20/20 I would guess without I would guess because as I said your prescription is very low.  Yes a small amount of astigmatism could cause you to squint a little.
