    Yes. Basic criteria is -6 Diopter and 165 cm.(relaxation of 5 cm in special cases). So yes you are eligible for technical services(this is what IPS & alike are called)

    There is no limit on power. Wear a spec of -10 D or -8D it doesnt matter.

    What matters is
    -6/6 vision after correction
    - no colour blindness
    - no structural or other permanent deformity

    But if u hv high numbered glass u may be referred to a MEDICAL BOARD on d day of ur medical examination. They will intensively check ur vision n eye. Just chill there no need to worry. Its part of d regular procedure.
    Based on my personal experience.
