For accommodations "lodgings and entertainment," see accommodation. Even in his most accommodating mood he inspires a dread of treachery. of accomodare "make fit, adapt, fit one thing to another," from ad- "to" commodare "make fit," from commodus "fit" (see commode). You wanted to go to sea, but he jumped at the chance of accommodating your desire with a vengeance.Three reactions occur simultaneously; the eyes adduct, the ciliary muscles contract, and the pupils become smaller.This action involves the contraction of the medial rectus muscles of the two eyes and relaxation of the lateral rectus muscles.When the eye focuses on distant objects, the lens holds itself in a flattened shape due to traction from the suspensory ligaments.Ligaments pull the edges of the elastic lens capsule towards the surrounding ciliary body and by opposing the internal pressure within the elastic lens, keep it relatively flattened.

Beasley said he would do it, just to be accommodating, and by so doing made a blunder.

Opposite of fixating on a near object, the ciliary muscle relaxes and the diameter of the lens increases to increase the lens’ size.

The tension along the suspensory ligaments is increased to flatten the lens and decrease the curvature and achieve a lower refractive power.

The medial rectus attaches to the medial aspect of the eye and its contraction adducts the eye.

The medial rectus is innervated by motor neurons in the oculomotor nucleus and nerve.

The peristriate area 19 interprets accommodation, and sends signals via the Edinger-Westphal nucleus and the 3rd cranial nerve to the ciliary muscle, the medial rectus muscle and (via parasympathetic fibres) the sphincter pupillae muscle.
