Eye accommodation

Eye accommodation is a process in which the eye focuses an object. During the accommodation, the eye lens either flattens or spans convexly. This process depends on the eye's elasticity, which declines with age, and also the correct function of the two parts of the human eye, the ciliary muscle and lens hanging apparatus. The hanging apparatus maintains the eye lens in position and exerts a tension so that the lens either spans or flattens.
