there is some evidence to undercorrect which may help slow myopia progression, but that was studied in people with lower amounts. I don't think it will harm to undercorrect and have him checked regularly. Are you visiting a pediatric ophthalmologist?

Thank you for the reply. My son has been seeing a Pediatric Ophthalmologist for eye health and an Optometrist for vision correction. We recently saw a Developmental Optometrist regarding vision correction; however, I do not know if that is best choice because he seemed more focused on vision therapy than corrective lenses. I understand therapy would not hurt; however, I question how much benefit my son will get from his with due to his high correction.
