How to read eye prescriptions?

I want to buy contacts online. But the dropdown menus they provide online don't seem to match my prescription I have. I've even done searches online, a lot of them seem to be close, but not quite. My prescription reads like this:

R-EYE: -1.25 -1.25x086 add +(blank) add2 + (blank) PD (dist) 61
L-EYE: -1.50 -1.50x088 add +(blank) add2 +(blank) (near)58

Am I to asume that the "add, add2 & PD" sections don't apply? since the adds have no numbers except for the plus sign, and the PD is used for glasses only?

The site I was looking at was ClearlyContacts.ca (with frequency 55 toric)

Is there something I'm doing wrong at the site? Or is it that the site can't process my specific prescription, which means I need to get them ordered directly through my optometrist?

Thank You so much for any help you can give me!!
