Myopia increases in growing age. That's the reason doctors say that eye sight gets stable by the age of 18-20. By this age we have attained the maximum height. But sometimes it keeps changing either due to too much of computer, mobile and ipads usage or sometimes it is progressive myopia.

What you have been told is correct. However, there are always variations. That is human body. There can be changes in some patients till 21 years of age.
