Hello and thanks for your question. First of all, the two prescriptions are written in different formats or conventions. When you look at the middle number for the prescription on each eye, you will note that it either has a + sign before it or a - sign before. You can write a prescription in either format, plus or minus, but the numbers change (are translated) when you change the format from plus to minus or vice versa.
When the format of the second prescription is to be plus like that of the 1st prescription, you can then compare apples to apples. Having done that, the right eye prescriptions on both are very similar, just a little bit more astigmatism in the 1st prescription. The left eyes are almost exactly the same.
The bot***** *****ne is, the two prescriptions are very similar and the differences would likely not make a significant difference in how you see. If I were you, I would think about how you saw when you were getting each prescription made and how you felt about the process with each one, and go with the prescription that you felt the best about. If there really is an error made in the glasses (or things just don't feel quite right), almost all optical shops will allow a remake of the glasses to be done in the first 90 days free of charge.
I don't think you'll lose on either one, though.
Does that help answer your question?
