Progressive extreme myopia

Hi,
I have been wearing glasses since I was around 7 years old(started with -3D). The problem is that even though I have grown up now(I will turn 27 this November), the myopia hasn't stopped from progressing. Today I wear -13D in both eyes and the last time I had to change my glasses was in the March of this year as the power increased from -11.5D to -13D. I am again getting the feeling that I am not able to see clearly from my right eye. The point worth mentioning is that I have such feeling only when I put my contact lens(-12D in both eyes) on and with glasses(-13D) on, I don't have any such feeling. I wonder why this is happening to me when I have got a new pair of contact lenses as per the prescription from my eye specialist. I am really worried abt the future and wonder when would the eye-sight stabilise. I have also noticed that whenever I do some physical labour (like running on treadmill or cycling), it seem to be causing my eye sight to deteriorate. Please could someone suggest if there is really a relation between physical labour and weakening eyesight.  
My eye specialist did not allow me to go for lasik laser surgery saying that she could see some retinal changes in my eye and it would not be advisable to go for surgery in near future. Any thoughts on that....

Thanks in advance.
Kakaatoo!

Your physician actitivity should not cause myopia to get worse and the relationship is likely coincidental. Use the search feature and read about "high myopia" and "pathological myopia" also google those terms.
