When the ciliary muscle is relaxed, the lens flattens to enable clear distance vision.

When the ciliary muscle contracts, the lens thickens, becoming more curved for added magnification for clear near vision.

In British English, accommodation is an uncountable noun.

Don't talk about 'accommodations' or 'an accommodation'.assist, assistance, help, aid - the activity of contributing to the fulfillment of a need or furtherance of an effort or purpose; "he gave me an assist with the housework"; "could not walk without assistance"; "rescue party went to their aid"; "offered his help in unloading" and arrangement which was practicable, drew from him some pleasant ridicule, which reminded Anne of the early days when she too had been ignorant, and she too had been accused of supposing sailors to be living on board without anything to eat, or any cook to dress it if there were, or any servant to wait, or any knife and fork to use.

The ciliary muscle, ciliary zonules and lens capsule keep the lens suspended in its proper position inside the eye for clear vision.

In a normal eye (without presbyopia or cataracts), this dynamic process of accommodation adjusts the focusing power of the eye by changing the thickness of the eye's natural lens.

This is why they are classified as "accommodating IOLs." Accommodation is made possible by the lens inside the eye and the circular muscle that surrounds the lens, called the ciliary muscle.

The lens and ciliary muscle are connected by a 360-degree series of fibers (called ciliary zonules) that extend from the ciliary muscle to the thin lens capsule (or "bag") that encloses the lens.

The primary difference between a conventional monofocal IOL and an accommodating IOL is the design of these haptics.
