hello naina.
these problems are becoming quite common these days with all the digitization and gadgets around...
make sure that he wears his glasses regularly or else the number will go up.. maintain distance when watching tv or other high contrast screens...Motivate him to take up outdoor games and give him diet rich in Vitamin a like Fish,Carrot, Spinach, Sweet potatoes etc....
and foremost is to visit opthalmologist and have regular checkups....
there are every chances that number may come down..
