Capable of accommodating

Accommodation decreases to about 1 dioptre at the age of 70 years.

The dependency of accommodation amplitude on age is graphically summarized by Duane's classical curves.

Note that these effects are most noticeable when the pupil is large; i.e. The age-related decline in accommodation occurs almost universally to less than 2 dioptres by the time a person reaches 45 to 50 years, by which time most of the population will have noticed a decrease in their ability to focus on close objects and hence require glasses for reading or bifocal lenses.

You wanted to go to sea, but he jumped at the chance of accommodating your desire with a vengeance.

Even in his most accommodating mood he inspires a dread of treachery.

Accommodation 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.

In this, 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 for a clear image.
