We report a case of progressive childhood myopia who developed rebound myopia and convergence excess esotropia after switching from 1% atropine eye drops to 0.01% atropine eye drops. The esotropia recovered and myopia progression was arrested after stopping 0.01% atropine drops and resuming 1% atropine eye drops.
