Why is my nearsightedness getting better with age?

my prescription for contacts was up in the 7's, but began getting better a couple years ago. I've had to continually get lower power. I'm now at 5.0 but it looks like it's time to go even lower. Is this normal?

    It is the most likely to happen if some of your myopia was due to accommodating inappropriately. This is called pseudo myopia. As you start to lose your ability to accommodate, you are less likely to accommodate inappropriately.
