In brief: Very high
Premade contacts occur up to about -16.
00 diopters. But if you have a greater power need, then a gas permeable lens can be made to any power needed. So there is no highest prescription for any power.

Pediatrics
In brief: About -16 diopters
For high myopia persons, contact lenses are available to about -16 diopters.
Technology improves every year, so a person should see his eye specialist at least once a year and ask about new products, while he is getting examined.
