Hola!

Does anyone know the appropriate translation for the word "accommodation" in the medical sense of the word as it relates to vision? My definition below:

Accommodation - Being able to adjust focus from near to far

Thank you!

    Hola. Por si alguien vuelve a consultar.

    El reflejo de acomodación y convergencia (accommodation convergence reflex) es aquel que nos permite adaptar el foco rapidamente y poder ver con claridad un objeto a, digamos, 50 metros y pasar a otro que tenemos a 10 cm. El cristalino se acomoda para lograr el foco y los ojos convergen (se acercan al plano nasal) para adaptarse a la menor distancia.

    Saludos
