But that, neither here nor there. Let’s talk atropine.
The question being, should you give your child atropine drops, because your “eye doctor” said so. Because your child has some mysterious genetic condition that causes poor eyesight, and putting paralyzing poison drops in their eyes, will slow this mysterious genetic malfeasance.
Temporarily, anyway. As long as you keep using the drops.
That sounds like a swell idea already, just by the brief summary. How you wouldn’t just go for that without asking questions, I don’t know.
I always recommend that you visit Google Scholar (scholar.google.com) whenever some symptom treatment “medical” authority wants to give you some take-this-pill-and-go-away-now solution, without addressing causes.
You want to look at clinical research, at the very least glance at some of it, before going down the road of eye-paralyzing poison drops for your child.
Also and why even mention it, your child will get sensitive to light, because shock and surprise, atropine stops your child’s pupils from working correctly. So your child won’t like to go outside to play which would actually be what you want, to stop the myopia progression.

Myopia is a scheme. A ruse, as it were. A 100 billion dollar a year profit narrative.
Don’t get your kids into glasses. iPads aren’t babysitters. Outside, still the old-timey and correct answer. For more and starting points to learn about natural myopia control, check out the child myopia wiki article.
P.S.: Your eyes aren't "broken".
It's your lens use and habits that keep making your eyes worse. And the massive hundred billion dollar optics industry loves it. They keep you in ever increasing prescriptions, and tell you stories of some mysterious genetic "myopia illness".
It's nonsense. Your eyes are perfectly healthy.
