is there anything we can do to slow down progressive myopia?

My daughter is 9 years old. She has myopia since the end of first grade (6 years old). Every year her prescription increases with 2 diopters. Last year we tried bifocal glasses and were hoping that this would slow it down. Unfortunatelly that was not the case. Right now she is with - 6.
Yesterday, we visit her eye doctor and he said that nothing can be done to slow down myopia. He just precribed her regular glasses. We are very afraid what will happend with her eyes if she continues the same way in the future.
