In brief: Myopia
The myopia will likely progress as your child grows.
You can try dilute atropine, bifocals, special contacts to eliminate peripheral defocus, or other treatment but your child will likely still progress. Get dome glasses or contacts to correct the vision for now. See an eye doctor for further discussion.
