In brief: Contacts or glasses

Minus 5 diopters is a lot of myopia.
..Probably too much to be corrected with ortho-k, a technique where hard contacts are worn at night to re-shape the eye. There are several surgical ways to correct myopia including prk, lasik and the implantable contact lens. If you don't want surgery, glasses or soft contacts are the way to go!
