Is the LensCrafters O.D. prescription screwed up or do I just not understand something?

In Dec 2010 I went to LC for an eye exam and was written this prescription:
OD sph+1.75 cyl-1.00 axis 165 add 2.00
OS sph+1.50 cyl-0.50 axis 060 add 2.00
They made these glasses but I could never see properly out of them, ended up returning them and got my previous pair which were OK but not great.
So later this year, an opthalmologist wrote me:
OD sph+0.50 cyl+1.00 axis 080 add 2.00
OS sph+1.00 cyl+0.75 axis 154 add 2.00
I am wearing these now, and they ROCK.
Are the two prescriptions as radically different as they look to me?
You are not my doctor, my opthalmologist or my optometrist and your response to this does not constitute medical advice, nor will it be taken as such.
