C+9.9 Welch Allyn SureSight Result Meaning?

My son is 2 years old and had the following exam results:

R7 S+0.6 *C+9.9
R8 S+1.1 *C+2.3

R7 S+0.8 *C+9.9
L8 S+1.5 *C+2.2

What does this C+9.9 possibly mean?  I understand it's very far
outside the "normal" range.  We have an appt. with an Pediatric
Ophthalmologist, but it isn't until February of 2013, and we are very
concerned because we do not understand what these readings mean.  Any
help explaining this would be greatly appreciated.

I have never seen a prescription written like this, but I believe that your son has some farsightedness and astigmatism; the astigmatism is very high in the right eye.  At your son's age, such a difference in the prescription between the 2 eyes can lead to a lazy eye (amblyopia) without proper treatment.  I would insist on a much earlier appointment with the pediatric ophthalmologist:  call every day!
