Is -4.50 considered really "bad" eyesight?

I had my eyesight checked today, and my prescription increased to a -4.50. I thought the big "E" was really blurry. Am I considered to have really bad eyesight? Thanks!

Not so bad, you don't even fall into the classification of high myopia (which is -6 or worse).
