Please ignore the last two paragraphs in my prior post (that start with, "I suspect that you are..." and "I think you have a non-accommodative..." I'll continue from where I left off prior to changing to the Q&A format.
Your description of his eyes being mostly straight (aligned) with his glasses on is a good thing and I would hope and expect this to be the case. What this says is that the high hypermetropia is responsible for the majority of his eye turning in and once his brain does not have to push his eyes to focus through that high hypermetropia (by wearing the glasses), his near trial/reflex can function more normally and not cause the eyes to slip inward when he looks at something up close.
However, now that your son is on atropine (in his good eye, the eye that does a lot of the visual work), it is as though some hyperopia is being added to the equation because the atropine interrupts the ability of the good eye to focus up close, so once again the slipping of that eye inward when he activates the near reflex occurs.
Because that reflex doesn't exist for viewing objects in the distance, I wouldn't expect it to occur for distance vision, only for near.
