my eyesight is -8.7 and -9 myopia and my wife is -12.0 and -10.0 myopia. we both wear glasses and contact lenses. am indian and my wife is chinese.

he likes to read close but doesn't watch much TV. we're so worried now, depressed and can't sleep. how to prevent it from getting worse and is there any way to reduce 'power'?? optician prescibed special myovision glasses (from zeiss) and will arrive in 2 weeks.
