I felt sorrow for your little boy suffering such kind of myopic degeneration and live with a life of physical activities hindrance.
I guessed your son had use the glasses very often for reading in the past years.
Because the distance between you and me, I can only say you must think about relaxation of your kid's eyes in reading and writting.
I strongly recommended you to visit the site www.geocities.com/dolphinhill/theorynotes.htm for details in near point stress relaxation with the use of plus lens.
Please remember, the stronger minus glasses you used for reading, the myopia deterioates more faster!

Our doctor says that his condition
will continue to deteriorate
until he is about 18 years old.
Owing to retina resignation danger
he has advised very limited physical
activities. He is also against
the use of contact lenses and has
prescribed bilberry tablets.
The doctor says that apart from
changing lenses in his glasses
a few times a year there is nothing
anyone can do about it.
We can only wait.
Naturally, we wonder if there is
really nothing what we can do.
Because if this is so, Mark will
become practically blind in
the next few years.
Could you please suggest what we can
do to control myopia?
Is it really necessary to restrict
