I wouldn't worry about it at all. I've been wearing glasses and dealing with ast since I was 8. My prescription is pretty strong but that is just the norm for me.

I have astigmatism too, and yeah I don't wer contacts. I didn't realize that is probably why I have a hard time at night. I hate driving at night. I just thought it was odd that my kids have astigmatism but don't need glasses. And since my oldest is already 11 I don't think her hyperopia will get better so I guess I should just pay attention and notice if she has a harder time reading.
