Your eyesight is not that bad. If the doc would have tested you with a 0.12 lenses you would have gone 6 lenses worse. Believe me it's nothing to worry about. 0.75 change is common at your age.

As for contacts, it's a good idea but not as a replacement for glasses but as an addition. You should wear contacts no more then 10-12 hours a day... usually up to 10 and take one or two days off wearing only glasses.

When I had -1.50 I wasn't wearing glasses at all. I would squint now and then but not that bad. My visual acuity was much better then average for that prescription. Now I'm over -3 and people are often shocked that I can function without correction.
On the other hand, I know a lot of people who cannot function without a -1.

I have a classmate who is sensitive to a 0.12 change and her prescription is around -2 so it might explain why you feel they are too strong. Does your previous prescription feels easier for computer use and reading or you prefer reading without glasses at all?
um yeah with my old glasses if I was wearing them I wouldn't take it off when reading or using the computter despite that I can still see the screen if I were to take them off. Oh and about what you said my eyesight changing being common at my age- out of curiousity, what age does your eyesight stop changing by a lot (on average)

I have -6 in both eyes and I have contact lenses. It took me a week of visiting the opticians for me to learn how to put them in because I'm squeamish but the opticians were always very patient an friendly. I have tried both disposable and monthly lenses and I've found the latter more comfortable so they're my favourites. They're half the price too! I also get free glasses and free eye tests so I really can't praise contacts enough.

Edit: as for the risks, if you're cleaning your contacts with the fluid and take basic precautions (no swimming, showers, or rinsing eyes with tap water), then the dangers are minimal.

you should wait until your in your 20s to get lasik or other eye procedures because your eyes may still be growing, and you dont want to get the surgery and have your vision start to decrease so you end up needing glasses/contacts anyways

To be fair, there's never any age where you can guarantee the prescription won't change. I've tested people 20s and above who are distraught because their prescription had been stable, they got laser ... and then it changed and they're back in glasses, with not enough cornea left to do it again.
