Astigmatism first class medical

Hello:

I know that astigmatism is limited to 200 degrees per eye ( according to ICAO regs) , however I have taken 2 First class medical exams ( FAA and Peruvian ) and none of them care about that as long as you have 20/20 in each eye. I have 300 degrees of astigmatism In one eye and 200 in the other.i wear RGP contacts.

My question is: if the airlines care about that in their medical exams?, I have seen some airlines such as Singapore airlines which clearly state in their entry requirements for F/O that you canít have more than 200 degrees of astigmatism.

Best Regards
