I'm trying to buy good looking prescription sunglasses with prescription right eye sphere -2.00 cylinder-2.75 axis 175, left eye -1.75 cylinder -2.75 axis 4. However the online company is coming back to me saying they are too strong for the wrap around sunglasses type. I'm wondering if I can buy the sunglasses without the cylinder values.
