You are having myopia in both the eyes. If it was a simple myopia, it should have stabilized at the age of 21-22 years. In case power of lenses is increasing you should be at lookout and get your fundus examination and refraction done about every two years. You should get an orthoptic checkup also done to rule out any muscle imbalance in your eyes.
