Accommodating female definition
The combination of these three movements (accommodation, convergence and miosis) is under the control of the Edinger-Westphal nucleus and is referred to as the near triad, or accommodation reflex.
While it is well understood that proper convergence is necessary to prevent diplopia, the functional role of the pupillary constriction remains less clear.
Accommodation (Acc) is the process by which the vertebrate eye changes optical power to maintain a clear image or focus on an object as its distance varies.
Distances vary for individuals from the far point—the maximum distance from the eye for which a clear image of an object can be seen, to the near point—the minimum distance from the eye for which a clear image of an object can be seen.
These words appear in red, and are graded with stars.

With an accommodating chaperon who knew no German, the couple could do and say what they pleased.
We went to a sort of inn kept by an accommodating native who promised to get up a good dinner for us.
It was distinguished by a large boot, made for the purpose of accommodating the Great Commoner's gouty leg.Arguably, it may increase the depth of field by reducing the aperture of the eye, and thus reduce the amount of accommodation needed to bring the image in focus on the retina. Whenever our eyes look from a dim light to a bright one, the iris rapidly automatically adjusts the pupil size.The purpose of the iris reflex is to allow the right intensity of light to fall on the retina. For accommodations "lodgings and entertainment," see accommodation. Beasley said he would do it, just to be accommodating, and by so doing made a blunder.
of accomodare "make fit, adapt, fit one thing to another," from ad- "to" commodare "make fit," from commodus "fit" (see commode). But you would need an accommodating fool to make your fires, and an industrious philosopher to keep them burning.
When humans accommodate to a near object, they also converge their eyes and, as a result, constrict their pupils.
