No.  This is a very small amount of astigmatism.  The contact lens will correct for this.  If the astigmatism was more severe (more than 1.0 Diopters) then a toric or astigmism correcting contact lens is needed.

what if you wear glasses and the astigmatism keeps going to be  more sever  ????
Glasses FOLLOW changes in the eye NOT CAUSE THEM.
