The accommodation reflex is a movement of the eye, in reaction to focusing on an object that is close, then looking at a distant object comprising of coordinated changes in lens shape and pupil size. The ciliary muscles in the eye control the change in the formation of the lens.

Changes in contraction of the ciliary muscles after the focal range for a distance of the eye, causing closer or future images to come into focus on the retina — the pupil contracts to expand the depth of focus of the eye.

Constriction of the pupils with near vision-2. convergence of the axes of the eyes-constriction of the pupils with near vision. -to assess the accommodation response, the client looks at a distant point then shifts their gaze to a near object a few inches away. the expected response is convergence of the eyes and constriction of the pupils to adjust for near vision. direct and consensual pupil constriction. -this is an expected finding when assessing the pupillary response to light. parallel movement of the eyes. -the six cardinal fields of gaze assess parallel movement of the eyes. convergence of the axes of the eyes. -the client looks at a distant point then shifts their gaze to a near object a few inches away. the expected response is convergence of the eyes and constriction of the pupils to adjust for near vision. light reflection at the same spot in both eyes. -this is the expected finding with the corneal light reflex.
