I visit to a eye specialist doctor yesterday. I've negative power in my lens. They examine me via keratometer then gave me a small receipt where my power were mentioned. But in doctors prescription my eye power is different and less than keratometer machine receipt power. Which will be actual lens power for eye that i can wear in glasses?

The report from the machine is for the doctor to see and interpret and not for you. Go with the signed prescription by the doctor.

You have to make specs according to the prescription of your doctor. The machine chit is a crude objective number which you don't have to use.
