Help me figure out what a mark on my eye prescription means...

Spherical - Cylindrical - Axis
OD PL +1.00 $
OS PL -- --
For the Axis on my right eye, the mark was "$". I have a slight astigmatism.
The left eye has a dash (I have no correction in my left eye).
I can't figure out how the "$" should be indicated when I order my glasses online.
All vendor only indicate a numerical value between 0 and 180.
I would have thought it would be 0, but that is what I know should be indicated for my left eye.
