What is the highest nearsighted prescription?

Asked by Alondra Cisneros

Diopters are also used as a measure of astigmatism and presbyopia. For nearsightedness the scale of diopters is given in increments of three and ranges from mild (less than –3.00 diopters) to moderate (–3.00 to –6.00 diopters) to severe (–6.00 to –9.00 diopters) To extreme (more than –9.00 diopters).
