Does this glasses prescription even make sense?

I had my optometrist fax me a prescription for eyeglasses because I would like to purchase a pair of sports googles, of this prescription. Currently, I wear this prescription over my contact lenses; it corrects the astigmatism.
However my optometrist is insane and weird (see a previous question of mine) and I would not put it past them to give me a lousy prescription so I can't just go online and fill this myself. Can you tell me if this is even legit? It doesn't seem to fit in the boxes when I go on Zenni's. Bonus points if you can quickly explain what it does mean if it is a legitimate prescription, and how I'd order myself.
