Seeing Shadowing But Now Worse with Contacts?

I have been seeing shadowing for quite some time now. (Meaning when I read something I see the words and then above it I see the word again but in a lighter color). It makes it very difficult for me to read and see things. I'm going to be starting college now so I wanted to fix this now. So a month ago I went to an eye doctor. She told me I had astigmatism and my prescription was -0.75 and -1.25. I also got glasses. My doctor told me that the shadowing would go away but it hasn't. I called after a day of wearing the glasses and again after contacts and she said that my eyes should adjust. I have been wearing contacts (mainly) and glasses for a month now and I honestly think the shadowing may be the exact same or slightly worse with the glasses or contacts on. (I'm not saying I wear glasses and contacts at the same time..) Sometimes I'll be looking at my laptop or reading something and I have to take my glasses off to just read it. Why is this happening? Am I not meant to wear contacts or glasses? Thank you.
