An option: A -3.5 prescription is considered myopia. Options include glasses, contact lenses and if your eyes are healthy and your refraction is suitably stable, then lasik/lasek vision correction is an option. You will require a consultation by an eye md.

Good prescription: The amount of nearsightedness can do very well with laser correction, such as lasek. Other factors are very important so a complete evaluation from your ophthalmologist is needed prior to any treatment decision.
