Go to www.geteyesmart.org  and search fore pediatric ophthalmologists near you. Call their office and ask if they use atropine therapy for rapidly progressing myopia or any of the other new treatments such as recently developed changes to classic Ortho-K    Also drops other than atropine have been used.

Thanks Dr.Hagan for website info. After calling and going through couple of  opthamologist on list around my area I did find one who does atropine therapy for myopia control.
Thanks again.
