All I can tell is that the left eye is very myopic with a mild amount of astigmatism.  The amount of myopia is -14.00 with -1.25 diopters of astigmatism.  The right lens is a balance lens which means it is just made to be like the other eye so both lenses look and weigh about the same.  Apparently thel right eye has very poor vision - perhaps 20/400 or less.  I don't know what your vision with glasses is in the good left eye.

How did you lose vision in your left eye - did you have a CNV (macular bleed)?
