Severe Myopia -30

I have been looking at your site and found it enlightening.
So here is my post :
i have a son of 2 yrs of age he is severely myopic of -30 & -35
he walks around ok he sees stuff, plays around all ok
except when he is trying to see something he will move the object very close to the eye to view in detail
his doc has advised contacts of -20 n glasses for -20 to start with
please help me understand his condition n what possible advice can u give me on what the doc has advised on contacts what kind will be perfect for him n what Rx is right for him.
