Hi, Any refractive surgery can't be done before the age of 18. So wait for some more time and continue with your glasses. Go for detailed evaluation with a LASIK surgeon or Cornea consultant to determine if you are suitable for refractive surgery.

As of now you must wear your glasses regularly. Since you have high cylindrical numbers I would advise once you should consult an eye surgeon and rule out early keratoconus-an abnormal condition of the cornea.

At this age u have to wear glasses. After completion of 18 yrs if your numbers doesn't increase then only u can go for surgery.  There are different options available but that dhould be discussed after your numbers stabilizes. Dont worry. Wear glasses. Options are there.
