Accommodation

Accomodation, in general sense, may refer to the dwelling or a transient lodging. In biology, it refers to an adjustment or adaptation. For example, in ophthalmology, accommodation pertains to the adjustment of the eye for various distances resulting in pupil constriction or dilatation. In this regard, the eye adjusts to a change of the distance. The eye increases optical power to produce clear image of an object. In geology, the term refers to the space that is available for sedimentation.
