Eye Glass Prescription

Pls find the prescription below: OD: -2.00 – 0.50 x 180 OS: +1.00 DS ADD: +1.75 OU My question is 1) In this case, if a bifocal is worn, will the power in distance vision be zero for left eye? and minus 2 for right eye? 2) Also power in near vision will be 0.25 for right eye and 2.75 fro left eye? Am I correct in understanding the meaning of the prescribed glasses? Requesting your expertise.

yes. but leave all this maths to the optician. you should be concerned about good vision through spectacles only.
